Browse Pictures of Granite Vaults, Tombs and Crypts for Cremated Remains
When planning an entombment of cremated remains in a mausoleum crypt, granite vault or tomb, you have a number of options in terms of the type of crypt you purchase. Cemetery mausoleums include indoor, outdoor or garden and private mausoleums. Columbariums for cremated remains are similar to mausoleums. The wall spaces for the cremains are smaller than for a traditional burial. Once the urn containing the ashes of the deceased has been interred in the columbarium, a bronze plaque or nameplate will be placed on the outside of the niche to memorialize the remains.
Cremated remains that are buried in the ground are best preserved in a granite vault. You will never have to worry about the elements degrading or destroying the contents, or the pressure crushing the container. The cover of the granite vault can be adorned with beautiful custom designs such as carved lettering and etched drawings, as well as symbols and imagery that convey the specific nationality or religion of the deceased. They can be for any number of urns and come in a variety of colors, styles and shapes with different price ranges. Browsing granite vaults, tombs and crypts for cremains is simple.
