DECISIONS TO BE TAKEN

We want to achieve the best outcome for you and your loved one and we will support you in the way you want the funeral. Below are some decisions that will need to be considered in planning the funeral of your loved one.

A Coffin Or Casket?

We are often asked the difference between a coffin and a casket; a casket is rectangular and uniform in shape and usually wider and longer than a coffin, while a coffin tapers at the head and the foot.

In choosing a casket or coffin people often look for a particular shape, colour, type of wood, fitting or interior. The shape can vary as well as the type of lid from flat, tiered or domed. Also, light to dark shades, gloss, matt or satin finish are all options available in our range.

Our caskets and coffins are derived from sustainable timber and include composite timber, pine, oak, blackwood or mahogany. Fittings and interiors also greatly vary depending on your needs, whether you prefer gold, silver or wooden handles and particular symbols added to the casket etc. Our friendly team, will provide you with suitable information in order for you to make the right choice that best reflects the personality of the deceased.
