We have a range of high end solid timber coffins and caskets, cremation urns and memorial cremation jewellery. All our products are funeral home quality.

We have had many families who come to our showroom to buy a cremation urn after the funeral has occurred whom are surprised to see how affordable our coffins and caskets are. Many comment on what they paid at the funeral home for a coffin which was not nearly as nice as the solid timber coffins we sell here at Caskets Direct. The fact is most families are not aware that they can buy a funeral coffin or casket direct. When they visit a funeral home they oten feel overwhelmed by the process and dont think or know that they are and can look around for alternative options. Please note that we have moved and the new show room is not large enough to display coffins and caskets.

The job of the funeral home is the help the family plan the funeral. Many families today are wanting to take control over the funeral arrangements themselves. The funeral home is there is guide you and provide you with the support you need during the difficult time. Although some families try to organise the funeral with out the aid of a funeral home what so ever, we feel that the role that funeral homes play in the fuenral process is a very important one.

Selecting a funeral home is an important descision. It's a good idea to speak with more than one funeral home to amke sure you find one you are happy with. I often get asked, 'How we know if the funeral director is right for us?' We like to go by our gut instinct. Did the funeral director make comfortable? Did you get along with them? Where they resonsive to my requests?
