Here are some places on the Internet that we would like to share with you:
There are important differences between caskets that should be noted prior to making your selection. The two distinct groups of caskets are Metal and Hardwood.
There are four types of metal caskets: Solid Bronze, Solid Copper, Stainless Steel, and Carbon Steel. They range in durability as well as price, with Bronze and Copper being the most durable, and therefore the most expensive. The type of metal, the casket shell design, and the interior fabric determine the price.
Hardwood caskets consist of many different types of wood. The price is determined by the specific type of wood, the casket shell design, and the fabric used to make the interior.
The interior fabrics, of metal and wood caskets, are available in velvet, velour, crepe and satin. Through head panels and hardware, some caskets reflect a theme such as nature, floral, and religious.
Metal caskets provide a wide range of eye appeal, durability, and pricing. This is why metal caskets account for two thirds of all caskets sold in the United States today. Available in a wide variety of colors and features, metal caskets provide great value and make for a fitting tribute. Metal caskets come in bronze, copper, stainless steel, and carbon steel.

Riverside National Cemetery is the third-largest cemetery managed by the National Cemetery Administration, and since 2000 has been the most active in the system based on the number of interments. It was established in 1976 through the transfer of 740 acres from March Air Force Base, which during World War II was called the U.S. Army's Camp William G. Haan. The cemetery was dedicated and opened for burials Nov. 11, 1978. An additional 181 acres was transferred by the Air Force in 2003.
