Personalised coffins, eco-coffins, colourful picture coffins
Coffins come in all kinds of colours and finishes - from traditional coffins to more colourful designs or more eco-friendly caskets for green funerals. Just as with any other part of the funeral arrangement, how much you chose to personalise the coffin is completely up to you.

Often chosen for eco-friendly funerals, cardboard coffins can also be used to create a memorable tribute for the family to personalise.
“The family wanted to be able to decorate the coffin. The cardboard finish meant that they could use felt tip pens to draw pictures, write messages and share memories. At another funeral, mourners were given marker pens and asked to write messages for the deceased as they left. Both were very unusual but incredibly poignant ways to create a truly personalised coffin that was unique and meaningful.”
