Coffins, Caskets & Urns
A major consideration when it comes to planning a funeral is deciding on what to do with the body of the deceased person. Whether you opt for cremation or burial, you will need to choose a coffin, casket or urn.
For burial, you can choose from a range of coffins and caskets. From solid hardwood coffins to other materials such as wood veneer or bamboo. To speak to a member of our team about eco-friendly coffins, call us on 0117 950 4100 or visit us in our offices in Westbury-on-Trym, Bristol.
For cremation, the person’s body will need to be placed in a suitable coffin for the cremation. We can advise on the types of coffins suitable for cremation. Following cremation, you will have the option of receiving the ashes in a scattering tube, designed to make scattering easier, or in an urn. You can bring your own urn, or you can choose from our available range of beautiful urns, which can reflect the personality and style of your loved one and look beautiful displayed in pride of place in the home, if you wish.
We have a range of coffins, caskets and urns from which to choose.
Coffins and caskets include traditional oak or elm, bamboo, willow, veneer and ecological. We can also supply contemporary printed coffins.
Below are a few of the coffins that are available. We have great relationships with many national coffin suppliers- please ask for advice if you do not see what you are looking for.
