Our funeral homes provide a wide selection of merchandise to meet the personalized needs of all families.
Our merchandise selection room provides samples of caskets, cremation urns and burial vaults for each family to preview and make their selection of choice.
Our selection of metal caskets includes a wide range of style and prices to accommodate the needs and budget of all the families we serve. The difference varies by:
Painted, shading (a second color) or brushing which is used to highlight the beauty of the metal itself.
The fabric used in the interior of the casket is another element of its overall value. Fabrics like crepe or twill offer an exceptional value, while velvet offers a sense of extra luxury, elegance and beauty.
Skyscrapers and automobiles are some of the things steel is used to build, which is why steel is strong and durable. The standard steel caskets that we offer are in three weights light, medium and heavy steel.
When you add chromium and nickel to ordinary steel, it adds exceptional strength and durability. Stainless steel is used to protect valuable equipment in the harshest environment.
Copper and Bronze
For monuments or sculptures or whenever craftsmen have wanted their work to overcome the elements, they turn to copper or bronze. These semi-precious metals are for our families who simply want the best.
Our selection of wood caskets offers families a broad selection of styles and prices to accommodate the needs and budgets of the families we serve. The difference varies by:
The exterior finish of a wooden casket both protects and beautifies it. From a satin finish to a hand polished finish on our most luxurious models.
Another important part of the overall value of a wood casket is the fabrics used in the interior. Our basic models use crepe and twill, while our most luxurious models use rich velvets for extra beauty and elegance.
Our selection of wood caskets uses woods from around the world, from poplar grown in the U.S. to mahogany from the wet forests of Africa, Central America and the Pacific. All specie of wood offers a distinctive look. The value progression of the specie of wood is as follows: pine, poplar, oak, maple, cherry, walnut, and mahogany.
Wilbert burial vaults protect the casket from ground elements and immense weight after interment. All Wilbert burial vaults employ high-strength structural concrete and Unidex-bonded interior liners of high-impact thermoformed plastics. Several also offer durable interior linings of bronze, copper or stainless steel. Wilbert burial vaults are available in three strength categories:
Premium Protection Triple Reinforcement
Standard Protection Double Reinforcement
Basic Protection Single Reinforcement
Regardless of your choice for final disposition, you will need to choose several containers. If you choose to have a viewing, the first is either a rental casket (a solid oak rental casket is included in our cremation package) or a cremation container. The second container is an urn (there are several choices of urns that are included in our cremation packages) to hold the cremated remains. We have many elegant choices in wide ranging styles and prices to meet the budget of all of our families, from solid-cast bronze, pewter, hardwoods, plastics, and other durable materials. You can also enhance the urn through personalization choices that distinguish your loved ones cherished life.
If you decide on ground burial for the urn, a third container, an urn vault (this is also included in our cremation packages), is recommended. In fact, in some cemeteries it is required that the urn be placed in an urn vault. Built of strong materials and sealed before interment, an urn vault protects the urn from subsoil elements and the weight of the earth and cemetery maintenance equipment.
MOMENTOS AND PERSONAL REMEMBRANCES
Miniature urns and jewelry offer families a wide variety of choices for memorializing their loved one. You may choose to bury or scatter the remains and keep a memento urn or a piece of jewelry as a personal remembrance. Many memento urns and jewelry are designed to hold a portion of cremated remains, a lock of hair, or earth from the gravesite.
