Funeral Coffins

A funeral coffin has a tapered end and a funeral casket is rectangular in shape. Funeral coffins are smaller and present less of a statement to that of a funeral casket. Many families chose coffins over caskets for simplicity. A beautifully designed coffin will have clean lines and the finish will bring out the natural features of the timber. The interior trim of funeral coffins can range of a very basic folded lining to an elaborate frilled satin trim with lace and matching pillow.

Funeral Caskets

Caskets are larger and more ornate. They have a wonderful presence and usually come with a beautiful upholstered interior. The casket interior is often made from satin or velvet and may have pleated detail. Many caskets come fully fitted with mattresses or adjustable beds. The lid of a funeral casket can be made in one of two ways. It can be made in one whole piece or in two pieces, some times called a split lid casket. A split lid funeral casket can be useful at a viewing as it allows the bottom half of the lid to stay closed.
