A range of designs and styles to suit all requirements

An ideal choice for alternative funerals

Some families may wish to have their loved one brought to the ceremony in a non-traditional coffin, one that reflects their beliefs or preferences better.

We stock a wide range of alternative designs and styles, which can be added to any funeral package for an additional cost. We also have more traditional designs available.

Modern coffin designs are becoming a more popular choice for families that would like an alternative or more eco-friendly funeral. View our selection below and get in touch with our team today.
