Underground?Edit

The article defines burial vault as "a structural underground tomb", yet there is an image of a burial vault above ground. --Stighammar (talk) 02:43, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

I was about to make a similar comment... there seems to be a confution with the "enclosure" burial vault, which has its own page. This definition seems to apply to the grave liner/coffin container that is the subject of that other page, while this one should apply solely to the (usually unerground, though I'd not swear it's integral to the definition) structure that is designed to house several dead people in a single place, basically a crypt aimed at receiving several members of the same family or group with usually a single above ground structure for access. What, in my native French, is called a caveau or caveau de famille (family vault). Svartalf (talk) 15:45, 5 May 2022 (UTC)
