Across most of the United States, in-ground burial (called interment) is considered to be the most traditional disposition of the deceased. Interment requires deceased loved ones to be placed in a casket, which is then lowered into the earth. In California, the state requires grave spaces to be lined with a burial container, which can be made of concrete, steel or other permanent materials. The grave space is usually topped with a monument or a marker that is inscribed with the name, birth date and death date. Markers and monuments can also include pictures and engravings to personalize each location.
