You can also add a meaningful touch to the casket through an embroidered message or a special design on a fabric overthrow.
Located in the lid of the casket, embroidered tribute panels provide you with a personal way to highlight a loved one's interests, hobbies or values. Choices include spiritual symbols, organizational emblems, favorite pastimes, or special relationships.
Added to the corners of the caskets, placed in an alcove or displayed on a memory table, LifeSymbols® designs are a touching expression of the spirit, personality and interests of your loved one. These popular casket enhancements are also used as individual keepsakes for family and friends, and include themes of patriotism, gardening, sports, family relationships, and spirituality.
A unique feature built into some caskets, the MemorySafe® drawer can be used to display your cherished keepsakes during the visitation, or to secure private mementos and farewell messages.
Positioned right inside the casket, the MemoryShelf® feature allows you to place special keepsakes and meaningful mementos on display during the visitation and viewing. This is a simple, subtle way to highlight the interests and personality of your loved one.
Burial Vaults / Grave Liners
In most areas of the country, no state or local law makes you buy a container to surround the casket or urn in the grave. However, in the Jaffrey area, all of the cemeteries require that you have such a container so that the grave will not sink in. Either a burial vault or a grave liner will satisfy these requirements. These are made out of concrete and can be a non-protective grave liner, an unlined burial vault, or a lined burial vault.
