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 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.

There has been new oversight legislation proposed for Arlington National Cemetery(ANC). Since reports of record keeping and grave miss marking surfaced at  Arlington  National Cemetery.

Senator Scott Brown of Massachusetts and Claire McCaskell of Missouri are supporting the Arlington National Cemetery Oversight Act.

U.S. Sen. Scott P. Brown, R-Mass., along with a bipartisan group of senators, has introduced legislation aimed at preventing the miss-marking of graves at Arlington National Cemetery in the wake of a series of revelations regarding the mishandling of remains of U.S. soldiers.

Mr. Brown said the Arlington National Cemetery Oversight Act would give Congress direct enforcement power over operation of the cemetery and impose new management requirements to prevent future cases of what he called “egregious mismanagement” at the cemetery.

Recent hearings into problems at the cemetery revealed as many as 6,600 graves may have been miss-marked at the cemetery.
