Batesville Casket Company (Parent Hillenbrand, NYSE: HI) has expanded it’s casket cartel into burial vaults. This is has been done by acquiring the Goria Vault Company. The anti consumer website connectingdirectors.com is reporting on Batesville and Vaults:
Yesterday I received an email from an Ohio funeral director who went to one of the Batesville distribution plants in Ohio to pick up a casket. While at the distribution plant he was given a sneak peek at the graveside set up Batesville is testing in Ohio, Indiana, and parts of Kentucky.
“Graveside setup ” is Funeral indsutry jargon for setting up a traditional burial site with a vault.
The fact that Batesville has had to go into burial vaults is a strong indication of funeral industry decline.
Burial Vaults are used in traditional Funerals and Burials in the United States. They are not used the UK. Burial vaults are not used in green burials. Batesville going into the burial vault business does not bode well for consumer funeral cost.

Now the reality of Batesville selling bringing on increased Cartel Status for Batesville Casket Company is only the opinion of Your Funeral Guy.
