What is a burial crypt?

high-quality burial vaults

The crypt, also known as a funeral niche, is one of the possible burial options for the interment of the bodies of your deceased. When the time comes to choose the final resting place for your loved ones, you can choose from several combinations, such as:

  • Interment with a vault and a tombstone
  • A burial crypt with a plaque or engraving
  • A public or private mausoleum crypt
  • A chapel

The crypt starts from the same principle as the vault. It is a monument intended to accommodate the body of a deceased person. The main difference between the burial crypt and the vault lies in the fact that the crypt is a raised monument, instead of burying it in the ground.

Crypts are usually accompanied by commemorative plaques or personalized inscriptions in the style of an engraving. In short, the crypt is to the coffin what the columbarium is to urns.

Why opt for a burial crypt?

The single crypt is an ideal solution for those who want to bring the members of the same family together. It is also used to protect the coffin or urn from weather conditions while offering a place of recollection for visitors.
