Cozine Memorial Group remains committed and prepared to safely care for the families we serve during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We receive continual updates from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA), Kansas Funeral Directors Association (KFDA), and the Kansas Department of Health and Environment about the evolution of COVID-19 in the United States.
Whenever possible, we will continue to enable families to participate in the customs and rituals that are most important to them. Families may still choose either burial or cremation. We recognize the importance of visitations, funeral and memorial services and have options available to help facilitate these needs including limited viewings and live webcasting of services.
At Cozine Memorial Group, we recognize that it is our responsibility to protect our staff and the health of those we are privileged to serve. We remain committed to assisting families in creating meaningful ways to commemorate the life of a loved one, while at the same time adhering to the guidance issued by federal, state, and local public health officials.
In order to better protect those we serve, we have temporarily reduced our business hours to Monday through Friday, 9am – 2pm. We will be closed on Saturday and Sunday. To arrange an appointment outside of these hours, please contact us. These reduced hours will allow our staff to be vigilant about providing safe and clean facilities for families and their guests. As always, we are still available 24 hours a day by telephone at 316.262.3435 or by email at email@example.com.
Classic Metal Vaults
Classic Metal Vaults protect the casket from water and other elements through the use of an air seal principle. This can be easily demonstrated by turning a glass upside down and then submerging the glass into water. The air trapped inside the glass prevents the water from rising more than a fraction of an inch. The same is true of a non-porous CMV metal vault. The air trapped inside the dome prevents outside water from reaching the casket.
Bronze is a metal composed of copper and small amounts of zinc, tin, phosphorus and other elements. Of all the materials used in the manufacture of burial vaults, the longest lasting metal is bronze. This double welded, solid bronze vault offers natural corrosion resistance and timeless protection. Hand brushed panels are fitted with coordinating hardware. One of the finest and most beautiful outer burial containers.
Copper is of one of the earth’s longest lasting elements. It is an ideal metal for burial vaults because it does not become brittle in low temperatures. Our Copper vault is double welded and water tested; this solid copper vault is known for its strength and durability as well as timeless beauty. Hand brushed side and end panels and decorative hardware complete this vault.
Stainless steel is a ferrous or iron based alloy. It resists oxidation and is corrosion resistant. This stainless steel vault is crafted of high-grade stainless steel with hand brushed side and end panels. Double welded, water tested and fitted with decorative handles.
Aluminum is a lightweight, strong metal that is easy to work with. Aluminum does not rust as it forms an oxide coating that actually protects the original metal. Our Aluminum vaults are extremely strong and are available in both 10 gauge and 12 gauge.
12 Ga Galvanized
Galvanizing is an accepted method of inhibiting corrosion and its resulting metal damage. Using the hot-dipped galvanizing technique, the base and dome are enhanced with a zinc iron alloy to increase metal durability. A clear color coating shows off the metal’s beauty and adds additional protection to these double welded and water tested vaults.
