Set Up

Wilbert offers a Wilbert Way set up and a lowering device, also known as The Wilbert Way Lowering Device. The Wilbert Way set up seals the vault above ground, ensuring that no foreign bodies will impede the seal of the outer burial container. This allows the cover to be displayed at the graveside. The Wilbert Way is only available on Wilbert trademarked burial vaults and may not be allowed in all cemeteries. If the grave is not suitable for a Wilbert Way set up, and at the CSR’s discretion, we may perform a “false” set up where the vault will be set up the Wilbert Way away from the grave and at a location in the cemetery that maximizes the safety of the family.

Grass & Chairs

Grass and chairs are available to families who would like a graveside service. Six pieces of grass and twelve folding chairs will typically cover a gravesite area and will be neatly arranged under the tent. Decatur Wilbert manages the delivery, setup, and removal of the grass and chairs.


One 15’x15’ tent will be set by Decatur Wilbert at the gravesite. The tent covers the burial area and provides a comfortable place for families to gather during the funeral.


A nameplate gives burial vaults a personalized touch. They are a standard feature of Monticello vaults and above. The nameplate includes the name of the deceased and the birth and death dates.


Wilbert Burial Vault provides disinterment services for our products. If it becomes necessary to move a vault from one location to another, we are able to remove the vault from the original interment site and transport it to a new location within the continental United States.

Vault Transfer

Vault Transfer is a service available between Wilbert licensees and dealers. Decatur Wilbert uses the vault transfer service when a burial request has been made outside of the licensee territory. The location of the cemetery is needed to determine the appropriate Wilbert licensee or dealer. Since the services offered by each Wilbert licensee vary, the licensees work together on a per burial basis to determine the services, such as tents, grass, chairs, and grave digging, that each licensee will provide for the burial.

First Responders

When a hero falls, Wilbert is there.

Our “Commemorating First Responders” program provides families of firefighters, law enforcement officers and emergency medical personnel who have died in the line of duty with a tribute worthy of their valor and sacrifice.

At no charge to the family, Wilbert and our licensees donate a customized Wilbert Stainless Steel Triune® burial vault. If the choice is cremation, we offer a selection of four urns, as well as a Stainless Steel Triune urn vault for memorial tribute. If permitted, a WilbertWay® graveside service may also be included.

Join us as we help families honor heroic lives, sacrificed in valiant service to neighbor and community.
