Traditional coffins are always popular and are available in either veneer or solid wood. Veneered coffins are approved for both cremation and burials and solid wood coffins for burial purposes.
Panels, raised lids and mouldings can be applied to all wooden coffins making them more individual.

Only a very small selection is shown on this page and we would welcome any enquiries regarding the availability of your coffin choice.
Natural material coffins are becoming increasingly popular - wicker, willow, seagrass or wool are just a few options available.
They can all be used for burial purposes but there are some restrictions on their use for cremation.
If you are considering one of these please check the options with us.
A vast catalogue of colours, patterns or pictures is available for both wooden or cardboard coffins.
The coffins are wrapped in a biodegradable material which makes them suitable for both burial or cremation and some green burial sites.
As with the coffin choices there is a wide variety of urns and caskets available in all manner of materials - wood, cardboard, fibreglass, metal and natural materials ie wicker, willow, seagrass or wool.
All the caskets and containers shown can be used for burial purposes.
There is something very satisfying in talking to a family about their loved ones life and then designing a bespoke coffin that reflects that persons career, lifestyle or hobbies. The coffin is as unique as they are.

Your unique design can be also be used for the Order of Service or reproduced onto a casket for cremated remains.
