It is a common burial myth that the law requires a concrete burial vault. However, most conventional cemeteries do as part of their conditions of service, but for them, it’s all about maintaining a flat surface for mowing (and about making a profit, as vaults can add thousands to the cost of a funeral). At Heritage Acres, we do not use or require burial vaults, as part of the green burial approach and commitment to the environment.
