Coffins and Caskets

Choosing an appropriate coffin or casket which means something to you will help with the bereavement process and is an important but, necessary, part of your funeral arrangement.

Working together with our specialist supplier J.C.Atkinson, an award winning manufacturer we are able to offer an exceptional standard of coffins and caskets.

We and our suppliers are renowned for our care to the environment, quality and service.

We have many different options available each offering a unique set of features, but before choosing it is perhaps worth taking a look back at the life of your loved one as this may point to the type of coffin or casket that would best represent their unique life.

  • Were they for instance interested in the environment?
  • Or perhaps they had a love of their garden
  • Or were a lifelong supporter of a football club,
  • Or maybe they were a very traditional person that liked things just so.

Whatever the uniqueness of your loved one we will have a coffin or casket that can help to represent them and their unique character.

FSC

The FSC or Forestry Stewardship Council is an international, nongovernmental organisation dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world’s forests. It was founded in 1993 in response to public concern about deforestation and demand for a trustworthy wood-labelling scheme.

FSC Oak of correct grade and widths is not always available in the timber market. Given this we may use an alternative Oak, proven sustainable, with similar accreditations.
