Coffins and Caskets

Coffins and Caskets

Our selection of coffins comprises traditional designs in solid and veneered wood and modern, enviromentally-friendly alternatives. Some designs are suitable for cremation only, some for burial only and some can be used for either.

It is not permitted to use metal in coffins for cremation and so any external fittings (handles, nameplates etc.) are normally made of electro-brassed plastic. Coffins for burial need metal fittings as the lowering webs will be placed through the handles. The 'Somerset' coffin and all our traditional burial coffins have hand-painted nameplates.  Please note that oversize coffins may incur an extra charge.

The designs shown below make up our normal range but, if you wanted us to quote for something not illustrated, we would be happy to investigate for you.
