THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A CASKET AND A COFFIN

The shape of a coffin typically resembles the shape of a body and has six or eight sides. It is wider at the top for the shoulders and gradually decreases in width toward the opposite end where the feet are placed. A casket is typically a four-sided rectangular box and often contains a split-lid for viewing purposes.

CASKET AND COFFIN TYPES

Solid Timber Coffins are made from natural timber, they have character and natural beauty that comes from natural timber. They are produced from high-grade cedar, camphor laurel and plantation radiata pine, various colours can be achieved by staining radiata pine. Traditionally there are two types of caskets, solid timber and steel. Steel caskets are intended for burial only whereas those constructed with timber can be used for both burial or cremation.
