Traditional Coffin and Caskets

We offer a large range of choice when it comes to the selection of a coffin or casket.

All our packages include a coffin as standard but you are welcome to choose an alternative from the range shown.  Prices are available from your funeral arranger.  Some products are specially made or ordered and may take a few extra days to be provided.  All are Australian Made.

Caskets & Coffins

What is the difference between a Casket and Coffin? 

A common question asked when planning a funeral and the difference is in the design. Caskets are usually rectangular with a hinged lid, a Coffin is a hexagonal shape with wide shoulders. Caskets are more fancy inside with a lined lid and a padded mattresses and pillows, Coffins have a more simple interior. Some of range such as those made from Willow and Wool are called caskets but this is more to do with their size and design. 

What are they made from ?

Most of our range, with the exception of the timber coffins, is produced using Australian produced E Zero MDF board.   

What does that mean?   E Zero MDF is a low formaldehyde emitting Medium Density Fibreboard product. It has a formaldehyde emission of less than 0.5mg/L. This is lower than the current Australian standard.   That means it is not only safer for the people who have made the coffin or casket, it is better for the environment whether being used for burial or cremation.

The Classic

This coffin is our standard presentable coffin suitable for services.  It is included in many of our packages.  It is a dark mahogany veneer colour and is pressed onto an e-zero mdf board. Depending on the package it comes with either none, 4 or 6 silver handles.
