Honoring Lives

Helping families honor the lives of those they love® is more than our mission statement. It is what we do every day through our products and solutions, company-wide initiatives and annual events.

Living Memorial Program

Since 1976, our Living Memorial® tree planning program has contributed to more than 14 million trees as lasting memorials to loved ones.

  • Included with the purchase of qualifying Batesville products, we arrange for a tree seedling to be planted in selected woodlands throughout the world.
  • We pay tribute to your loved one with a lasting memorial while helping the environment.
  • This program provides trees that shelter our wildlife, reduce water and wind erosion and contribute to the purity of the air we breathe.

The Living Memorial program helps ensure that future generations will know the beauty of a green planet — a lasting legacy to a life well lived. Talk to your local funeral home for more information about this program.

Personalized Products

Father. Son. Veteran. Fisherman.

There are many words that can describe someone’s life. Chances are no two lives are identical. That’s why we offer personalized products to honor and express individuality. Many of our caskets can be personalized on the interior and exterior. We can also personalize many urns with engravings, appliqués and medallions.

Living Our Mission

Our mission of helping families honor the lives of those they love® lives throughout our organization.

Supporting Those in Need

Dealing with a loss is never easy. Whether it’s providing food and clothes to flood victims or caskets and urns to those impacted by a national tragedy, we do our part to help families during their time of need.

Remembering Our Own

The annual Remembrance Day honors our recently departed friends, family and colleagues. Associates who recently lost a close family member receive a keepsake to honor their loved one. It’s a fitting tribute to the work we do each and every day.

Honoring the Fallen

We gather with members of the local community for an annual Memorial Day flag raising ceremony. Flags representing each branch of the Armed Forces are raised in honor of those who have fallen while serving our country.

Giving Back

Giving back to the community is important to us. We encourage our associates to volunteer their time to support local organizations.
