Wilbert offers multiple ways to personalize a burial vault or urn vault with words, symbols, and images that speak of a singular spirit. Your loved one had a unique personality. The selections you make for the visitation and service should communicate that singular spirit. These choices ensure your loved one's memory is remembered for generations to come.
West Michigan Burial Vault offers two types of burial set up: the standard set up and the Wilbert Way (WW) at an additional charge.
Grass & Chairs
For those who are interested, grass and chairs are available as an additional service to families who would like a graveside service or an extra amenity at the burial site. Six pieces of grass and eighteen folding chairs will typically cover a gravesite area and will be neatly arranged under the tents. West Michigan Burial Vault manages the delivery, setup, and removal of the grass and chairs.
One 16x16 tent is set by West Michigan Burial Vault at the gravesite for funeral services. The tent cover the burial area and provide a comfortable place for families to gather during the funeral. At the end of the graveside service, the family tent is removed.
Nameplates give burial vaults a personalized touch. There are no additional charges to add a nameplate to the vault. The nameplate includes the name of the deceased as well as the birth and death dates.
Grave Digging & Disinterment
West Michigan Burial Vault provides grave digging & disinterment services. We are fully equipped with "back hoe" tractors which significantly reduce the amount of time needed to prepare a grave. The grave digging service includes the opening and closing of the grave. If it becomes necessary to move a vault from one location to another, Wilbert can assist with these services. We handle everything from locating the vault to relocating the vault to a new location.
Vault Transfer is a service available between Wilbert franchises and dealers. Wilbert Burial Vault uses the vault transfer service when a burial request has been made outside of the franchise territory. The location of the cemetery is needed to determine the appropriate Wilbert franchise or dealer. Since the services offered by each Wilbert franchise vary, the franchises work together on a per burial basis to determine the services, such as tents, grass, chairs, and grave digging, that each franchise will provide for the burial.
