Burial urns and caskets

Burial urns and caskets are placed within the ground, typically in a cemetery. These come in all different types of materials, colors, and sizes. Burial urns hold cremated remains, while burial caskets hold the bodies of the deceased. Traditionally, these are buried 6 feet below the ground, and this is still common practice in most parts of the world today. The more you know about burial urns and caskets, the better prepared you'll be to make an informed decision.
