Caskets


Whether you are preplanning for yourself or choosing for a loved one, a casket selection is a very personal decision and an expression of your feelings. A casket that reflects the personality and taste of your loved one can be your final tribute to their life. Shumate-Faulk Funeral Home understands these needs and offers a wide variety of caskets that can help you make your decision.

Metal caskets

including those made from bronze, copper, stainless steel and steel -- are known for their unique finishes. Bronze and copper are among the most durable and beautiful of metals; both are naturally non-rusting. Stainless and carbon steel caskets come in a variety of grades, gauges, styles and finishes.

Hardwood caskets

include a variety of species: mahogany, walnut, cherry, maple, oak, pecan, poplar, and pine. These caskets are the choice of families who appreciate and cherish the qualities of natural wood. The warmth, beauty and personality it brings to fine furniture ideally suited it for the construction of quality caskets.

When budget is a challenge, cloth covered caskets are especially appropriate because they meet the special needs of some families.


Vaults and Urns

Vaults

A burial vault is designed to protect the casket from the weight of the earth and heavy cemetery maintenance equipment as it passes over the grave during routine maintenance. This heavy equipment can put great pressure and weight on graves, causing maintenance problems and endangering the appearance of the grave and cemetery itself. With this in mind, selecting a quality burial vault is not only practical but essential.
