Coffins

If you prefer to have a coffin other than the oak veneer, plain cardboard or shroud which are included in our Simple Funeral fee, then this is no problem. Below is a selection of some of the coffins that we can provide – if your choice of coffin is out of stock, we will do our best to find a similar alternative for you.  Of course, you’re perfectly free to provide your own, we do charge a coffin handling fee. The coffin handling fee ensures that the coffin is fit for purpose, that we can receive the coffin and get rid of the packaging.

Some outsize coffins may cost a little more.
