Coffins and caskets

Choosing the right coffin or casket is often an important decision for families. We have a  variety of options to choose from to suit every budget and every service, whether you are considering a burial or cremation for your loved one. The images on the site are just a small selection of the options that we have available.

We hand-finish every coffin here in our workshop, adding the individual touches that make it personal. If you want a more bespoke, hand-made casket, ask us for more details. We will be happy to work with you to provide whatever materials and designs you need.
