The Coffin Cover

What is a Coffin Cover arrangement?


The Coffin Cover is effectively an external protective shell that provides a dignified means of transport for the simple coffin inside.

The Coffin Cover is a handmade veneered casket, shaped to provide a distinctive traditional appearance that will lend presence and dignity to any funeral. Concealed discreetly inside is a separate internal coffin that is lined to provide peace of mind to those who would want to spend time viewing the deceased.

The simple internal coffin is made of an environmentally friendly material such as cardboard or recycled composite material. It is this internal coffin that is removed from the outer Coffin Cover and cremated following the funeral service at the crematorium.

The outer Coffin Cover never comes into direct contact with the deceased and can be re-used on other occasions.

There is only a charge for the simple internal coffin.
