Why Batesville?

As a partner to thousands of funeral homes across North America, we understand the needs of families and funeral professionals.  We believe that actively working to build a stronger future for funeral service will:

Help better meet the needs and wants of families who have experienced a loss and start them on the path to healing.

Deliver innovative products and solutions that make a difference in the lives of families and matter to the funeral industry.

Help family & friends understand the value of meaningful funerals and plan a tribute that will honor their loved one.

Memorilization Product Showcase

Design and home trends have often figured into memorial products, and the newest offerings by Batesville reflect the latest taste in home decor.

The popularity of rustic home decor is now also reflected in casket and urn design as well as in memorialization products, according to Troy Turner, Batesville’s chief marketing officer.

“There is a natural beauty in the open knots, the rough finish, nail holes, and other variations in reclaimed wood that evokes memories,” Turner said. “The wood tells a story and people find it easy to connect on a personal level.”

The Holton memento chest and the LifeStories photo frame reflect the design trend.

Both are constructed from authentic reclaimed wood. While they complement the company’s Barnett and Fireside caskets, they can also be purchased individually.

The Holton offers tremendous flexibility in memorialization. The panel on the lid of the chest can hold either a photo, a LifeStories medallion, a corner design or engraved plate. It can be used either to store keepsakes or to hold a sheet bronze chest or square biodegradable urn with cremated remains.

The Lifestories distressed photo frame holds a 5-inch by 7-inch photo and is designed so that it can be incorporated into the cap panel as a decorative item during services and then taken home by the family as a memorial.

The LifeStories Distressed Photo Frame is designed so it can also be incorporated into the cap panel as a decorative item during services.

Don't Take Our Word for It

Batesville has been rated #1 in product quality, service and innovation for three years in a row by funeral professionals, according to Funeral Service Insider (FSI)!

Batesville’s legacy of manufacturing excellence is also noted by experts outside of funeral service. All of the company’s plants have been recognized as winners or finalists in the Industry Week Best Plants of North America competition, alongside some of the world’s leading automotive, defense, medical, electronics, and other industrial manufacturers. Batesville is the only casket company to achieve this status, and one of only a few companies that has repeat wins.
