COFFINS

Due to the many different styles and materials of coffins available today it is not possible to list them all here;

however we will be happy to provide you with other choices and more comprehensive brochures at your request.

We are fortunate to have contact with a number of skilled craftsmen who are able to cater for your special

bespoke wishes. However, some designs require more time to produce, which will be taken into consideration

when arranging the time and day of your funeral.

 

Our traditional range of coffins and caskets are available in either wood veneer on chipboard or MDF, and solid

wood. However, you can also choose a coffin created from natural materials such as Somerset willow, wool and

banana leaf or a colourful metal American bespoke style coffin.

Metal Caskets and Urns

These are suitable for the more permanent keeping of a loved one’s cremated remains and can be inscribed with their name and any particular text. They can also be used for keeping items of memorabilia of a loved one. We hold manufacturer’s brochures offering the full range of these products. Smaller versions are available for keeping a small quantity of cremated remains, perhaps if children or siblings wish to care for some. We will divide the remains according to you. Most churchyards and cemeteries do not accept metal urns for burial.

Temporary Tubes

These strong card tubes are suitable for keeping a loved one’s cremated remains, possibly for scattering at a later date. They are produced in plain colours and also in a variety of designs. They range in size to take a full set of cremated remains right down to mini tubes for a little keepsake.
