Burial in a vault

Bestattung Himmelblau Wien Gruftbestattung Entombment

An entombment is much like a burial. However, the burial takes place not in an earthen grave but rather a stone-walled room which may be above the ground (a mausoleum) or below the ground (a tomb). The casket is also somewhat different – usually this will consist of a double casket that is hermetically sealed. The aim of an entombment is to preserve the body by excluding air.

Tomb caskets can be made from metal or hardwood. In both cases they will have an airtight, inner metal layer.
