Coffins and Caskets

Our traditional service is based on us using a standard oak veneered coffin which we call "The Romsey" that is both presentable and adequate for most funerals and which can be seen by clicking on the left hand window of the veneered coffins.

However, should something more different be required, then these are usually obtainable within 3-4 working days. We have categorised the various types of coffins or caskets below to show the designs and materials available.

Veneered coffins and caskets

Manufactured from MDF (medium dense fibreboard) which is both strong and economic, but faced with a real wood veneer of oak or mahogany and real wood mouldings to match. Some are stained to acheive a more uniformed look and they can be embossed or routered to provide more decoration.

Solid wood coffins and caskets

Made from real european oak or mahogany we can provide some of the finest quality solid wood coffins and caskets available. With plain or routered sides and raised lids, they are fitted with metal handles and fittings and upholstered with a luxury interior.

Hand-woven coffins

Available in either a traditional coffin shape or an oval casket design, these are made by skilled weavers in natural materials and lined with calico cotton liners. Some can be personalised with coloured bands or handles and with willow there is a choice of a light or dark finish, Apart from willow, other materials that are used are bamboo, pandanus, water hyacinth, banana leaf and wool.

Cardboard and decorative coffins

Probably the best looking cardboard coffin is available from Colourful Coffins and it can be supplied plain or with a decorative finish. They also apply their decorative designs to traditional shaped coffins or caskets manufactured from either MDF, pine or oak. A small selection of designs can be seen on the right or click on the link below for their web-site.
