What is an In-Ground Burial?
In-ground burials are the most traditional choice for burials following death. This method of burial is also the most common and most popular option in the United States. In-ground burial is an ideal option for those that want an outdoor memorial and would like a place for loved ones to come and reflect. It is also a good option for those that would like to be memorialized next to their loved ones.

To prepare for in-ground burial, the intact remains are preserved and placed into a casket. A hole is dug in the location where the body and casket are to be buried. Traditionally, a funeral will take place and the casket is professionally loaded into the ground and covered with dirt. In the following weeks, the area is landscaped and a memorial is placed to mark where the remains are located.
