Wooden coffins

Wooden coffins are traditional and tend to still be favoured. Hardwood coffins are available in a range of sizes and timber, ranging from mahogany and oak, through to pine. It is possible for wooden coffins to be decorated with carvings if required. We also offer more affordable wooden veneered coffins which are more cost-effective while not compromising on quality.

Eco-coffins

Eco-coffins are becoming ever more popular as people strive to reduce their impact on the environment. Environmentally friendly coffins and caskets are made from materials that biodegrade back into the Earth naturally. Our eco-friendly coffins include:

  • Wicker
  • Bamboo
  • Banana
  • Pandanus
  • Willow
  • Cardboard
  • Wool and felt

Additional options

We offer a range of additional options which you can choose when ordering your coffin or casket. These include different finishing options such as handles and nameplates. Plant fibre coffins can have rope and cord handles, while metal plates are traditional for wooden coffins. Wood and cardboard can be hand finished with painted designs, carvings or a collage, which gives you the option to refelct the personality of your loved one through pictures, for example.
