When planning a funeral, one of the many decisions you will make is where your loved one’s final resting place will be. Depending on whether you choose a cemetery, your home, your garden or some other location, you will need to choose an appropriate protective container. Your funeral director will match your specific needs to all available options, which may include caskets, vaults, or urns.

You may also want to purchase a permanent memorialization for your loved one. Memorialization includes personalized markers, monuments and a variety of keepsakes. For information on options and pricing, please contact Roper & Sons directly at 402-476-1225.

Caskets

Caskets

Caskets are made in a wide variety of styles and materials, such as pine or a composite of hardboard, and other woods, steel or stainless steel, or from the finest materials such as bronze, copper, or mahogany.

Cremation Caskets

Cremation Caskets

Casket options for cremation include hardwood caskets, for those desiring something more traditional; cremation caskets for those wanting a simple yet dignified casket constructed specifically for cremation; and basic cremation containers. All of these caskets are cremated with the body.

Rental Caskets

Rental Caskets

When a family opts for cremation, and choose to have a visitation or even a service with the body present, a solid oak casket is available for rental. The interior liner of this casket is replaced for each service.

Urns

Urns

Memorial Urns are permanent containers for the remains. We offer a wide range of styles and prices appropriate for burial, niches, scattering, keepsakes or placement in a home. Some urns are ornately designed for display purposes while others are very basic in style. Many of the urns can also be personalized with engravings or laser designs.

Urn Vaults

Urn Vaults

Urn Vaults are protective containers in which urns are commonly placed. In many cases, where families desire to bury the urn-encapsulated remains of their loved one, cemeteries will require the use of an urn vault. Much like burial vaults for caskets, urn vaults protect the urn from being crushed and protect the ground above them from caving in over time.

Vaults

Vaults

Grave liners or vaults are designed to protect the gravesite from collapse, and most are manufactured with inner liners that restrict the entrance of water and earth and increase the strength of the vault. These vaults may be sealed or may be simple concrete grave liners. Urn vaults serve the same purpose, only are designed to hold an urn rather than a full-sized casket.

Memorial Monuments and Markers
