Wal-Mart is now in the funeral business, selling caskets and urns on its website at prices meant to undercut most funeral homes.  All are less than $2000, except for the Sienna Bronze Casket which sells for $3,199.  Caskets ship within 48 hours and federal law requires funeral homes to accept third-party caskets.
