Figure 2 is a view in side elevation thereof.
Figure 3 is a cross sectional view taken sub
stantially on the line 3-3 of Fig. 1.
Referring now to the drawings in detail, it will
be seen that the embodiment of the invention
a which has been illustrated comprises a concrete
body which is designated generally by the ref
erence numeral I, said body being molded and
including a bottom 2 from which integral walls

ing of reenforced concrete, will‘ not collapse with
the passage of time, thus preventing sunken
graves. Further, the vault may be readily moved
to another location without disturbing or ex- 20
posing the body therein.
It is believed that the many advantages of a
burial vault constructed in accordance with the
present invention will be readily understood and
although a preferred embodiment of the device is 25
as illustrated and described, it is to be. under
stood that changes in the details of construction
and in the combination and arrangement of parts
may be resorted to which fall within the scope of
the invention as claimed.
What is claimed is:—
1. A burial vault comprising a bodyincluding a
bottom and integral walls rising from said bot
tom, said walls including enlarged top portions,
The walls 3 of the body i are formed to provide - an integral ?ange rising from the outer marginal $5
enlarged or thickened top portions 5 and rising - portions of said enlarged top portions, said ?ange
from the outer marginal portions of said enlarged
top portions is an integral ?ange 8. The ?ange 6
comprises an enlarged base portion 1. Immedi
10 ately adjacent the base 1, the ?ange 6 has formed
in its inner face a groove
Rising from the enlarged top portions 5 of the
walls 3 and spaced inwardly from the vbase ‘I of
the ?ange 6' is an integral rib or tongue 9. The
45 reference numeral I! designates a concrete cover
which is adapted to rest on top of the walls 3
with its ‘edges in inwardly spaced relation to the
?ange i and the base ‘I of said ?ange, thereby
providing a chamber or space for the reception
50 of a securing-and sealing medium ll of suitable
material, such as concrete. Extending around
the edges of the cover It is a groove II. of
course, the medium ii enters the grooves 8 and
II, as illustrated to advantage in Fig. 3 of the
as drawings. ‘
including an enlarged inwardlyextending base
portion, said ?ange having a longitudinally ex
tending groove in its inner face immediately
above the base portion, an integral tongue rising 40
from the enlarged top portions of the walls in
inwardly spaced relation to the base portion of the
?ange, a cover mounted on the enlarged top por
tlons of the walls and having its edges spaced
inwardly from the ?ange and the enlarged base 45
portion of said ?ange, said cover having a con
tinuous groovearound its edges and further hav
ing a continuous groove in its bottom for the re
ceptionof the tongue, said cover, in conjunction
with the ?ange and the base portion of said ?ange. 60
defining an open top chamber for the reception
of a securing and sealing medium, said groove in
the edges of the cover being located opposite the
upper portion of the ?ange when the cover is
placed on the body and the ‘sealing material when I‘
placed in the chamber having its top surface
sloping downwardly and outwardly.from the cover
over the top of said ?ange.
2. A vburial vault comprising a body including
side walls, a ?ange rising from the outer marginal
portions of the upper edges of said walls and hav
ing a groove in its inner face extending length
wise of the ?ange, a cover having a depending
rim which rests on the upper edges of said walls
with the outer side edge of the cover spa'ced an
appreciable distance from the inner face 01' the
?ange to form an open top chamber, said outer
edge of the cover having a longitudinally extend
ing groove therein located opposite the upper
portion of the ?ange when the cover is in posi
tion on the body and sealing material located in
the chamber and ?lling the grooves, the top of
the ?ange being but slightly spaced below the
plane 01.’ the upper edge of the side edge of the
cover and the top surface of the sealing material
sloping downwardly and outwardly from said top
edge of the side edge of the cover to the outer
face 01’ the ?ange with a part of the sealing ma
terial covering the top 01.’ the ?ange.
