We are pleased to announce that Wilbert Funeral Service in Chicago (corporate HQ) has awarded Peoria Wilbert Vault with "Ultimate Service Provider" for seventh year in a row. There are four service levels: Minimum Service, Basic Service, Premium Service, and Ultimate Service Provider. To be classified as an Ultimate Service Provider, one must receive at least 75 points out of 88 points; a higher score is attainable when bonus points are earned for exceptional achievements. Points are collected by category, including tents, chairs, greens, Wilbert Way, lowering device, vaults, employees, and trucks and delivery.  Although we are proud of this accomplishment internally, it pleases us most that local families are the recipients of this service.

Wilbert Way Installation

The purpose of a Wilbert Way Installation is to ensure the vault is sealed properly giving you maximum benefits of the vault. Wilbert Way Installation is a respectful grave side service that consists of an above ground seal over the grave. The family can be present for the sealing and lowering of the vault providing closure and peace of mind. Additionally this service provides bottled water (seasonal), lap blankets (seasonal), heaters (seasonal), individual tissues, register stand, and American Flag (for veteran’s services).


Wilbert offers two types of burial set ups, Wilbert Way (WW) and Ovation. The difference in the two set ups is in the placement of the vault and the vault cover during the funeral service.  With the Ovation set up, the vault cover is displayed in front of the family.  The Ovation display is available for personalized vaults.

Tents, Grass, & Chairs

One 15x15 tent plus an awning, grass, and 12 chairs are set by Peoria Wilbert at the gravesite for funeral services. The tent covers the burial area and provides a comfortable place for families to gather during the funeral.  Several pieces of grass and up to twelve folding chairs will typically cover a gravesite area and will be neatly arranged under the tents. Peoria Wilbert Vault manages the delivery, setup, and removal of the tent, grass, and chairs.


Nameplates give burial vaults a personalized touch and are available for all vaults except the concrete box. The nameplate includes the name of the deceased and the birth and death years.

Vault Transfer

Vault Transfer is a service available between Wilbert licensees and dealers. Wilbert Burial Vault 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.
