There are a wide range of funeral related products available. Caskets, vaults (outer burial containers), cremation urns, register books, laminated obituaries, memorial folders, and acknowledgment cards are just some of the items that we have to offer.
There are basically two types of caskets, metal and wood. Metal caskets are provided in the following materials: Bronze, Copper, Stainless Steel and 16, 18 and 20 gauge steel. Wood caskets are available in Mahogany, Cherry, Walnut, Maple, Oak, Pecan, and Poplar. Rouse Funeral Home also provides cremation caskets. These caskets are specifically made for cremation and are available for those families who choose to have a formal visitation or viewing of the deceased before cremation. An alternative container is available for cremation if the family chooses. The alternative container is made of fiberboard. Caskets are not required for cremation, but most crematories require that some type of alternative container be used.
The outer burial containers Rouse Funeral Home provide are made of reinforced concrete and steel. The reinforced concrete range in type from bronze, copper and stainless steel lined with a high impact ABS interior to a concrete box with no protective seal. The steel range in different gauges of copper, stainless steel, galvanized steel and painted steel to steel liner with no protective seal. Most cemeteries require some type of outer burial container.
Feel free to contact Rouse Funeral Home, if you have any questions concerning any products we have to offer.
