Usually that depends upon the cemetery. You would need to discuss that with your funeral director or the cemetery of your choosing. Most cemeteries would be okay with a casket that is not sealed.

All sealed caskets use a rubber gasket that will break down over time. This can be delayed by placing the casket in a sealed vault.
