At last, Walmart can truly be said to take customers from cradle to grave.  The giant retailer began selling caskets and urns on its website recently.  A Walmart sendoff starts at $895 for a steel casket and goes up to a solid bronze version for $2,900.

Fifteen models are offered online and they're delivered to your funeral home in 48 hours, but Walmart won't accept returns.  The Bentonville, Arkansas-based company says the caskets are made by Star Legacy and shipped from warehouses in Illinois, California, Tennessee and Pennsylvania.
