Choosing a Coffin

We offer a variety of coffins from the traditional wooden coffins to more unusual wicker or cardboard coffins. Coffins can also include unique paintings and designs helping you to personalise the funeral ceremony further.

In addition, people sometimes like to place items or mementos in the coffin with their loved one, such as letters, photos, or something that reflects a favourite pastime of the deceased like a book, sport shirt, or pair of dance shoes for example. We will advise you on this.

Shown in ‘woodfilm’ this coffin is also finished plain (‘signature’) for self-decoration, or in a variety of ‘creative’ finishes (at extra cost).
