- Double or Triple-Depth in-ground Graves – Most traditional in choice, this grave is located in the ground and accomodates two or three full body caskets along with one cremated remain. This spacing is deeper than normal. The first casket is placed at the deepest level, the second casket is buried at middle depth on top of the first, and for triple depth the casket is place at top level. Optional Cremated remains are place at the head of the grave. Lawn Crypt – Is a concrete grave liner already placed in the ground. The casket is inset within offering some structural protection, then covered with a concrete lid and fresh soil. Depending on the section available, burial spaces may accomodate double or triple depth with one cremated remains. Casket Options - Material or casket type is very personal and sometimes based on the deceased wishes. Casket material is typically cloth, wood or metal which vary in color, size and pricing.
