The difference between coffins and caskets is their shape. Traditionally, the casket is rectangular in profile with a hinged lid. A coffin is designed to be wider at the shoulders and tapered to each end. A coffin is always constructed with a fully removable lid.
Our caskets and coffins are hand-crafted by specialists, using premium grade solid timbers, customboard, cardboard and wicker. They can be ordered when making funeral arrangements, putting together a pre-arranged funeral or by contacting us directly.
