Coffins
Probably no single element of the modern funeral has changed more than the coffin itself. Whilst the majority of funerals still incorporate a traditional, fully-furnished wooden coffin, a wide range of alternatives are available. The traditional wooden coffins we offer are shown in the colour photo-brochure available at our office. But shown below are links to the suppliers of the alternative styles of coffin most commonly requested.


(Please note: whilst these illustrations cover a broad range of examples, a great many other styles are available and we will gladly advise you and help you to explore all available options).
