An easy to install burial container which takes up far less land area and greatly reduces installation labor over current burial practice by being installed at an angle rather than parallel to the surface of earth or other receiving material with the burial container mainly comprising a hull into which is placed a body or material to be buried and a means by which to provide closure for the said hull.
