Economical coffin providers use U.K. suppliers, they are all manufactured in the U.K. and are fully compliant with all regulations, giving you complete piece of mind that the coffin you are buying really is good for the environment and is cost effective.

Doesn’t that limit my choice? No! Due to the nature of the materials and processes we use we can offer a wide range of styles and finishes to meet your desires and budget.


The National Association of Funeral Directors Environmental Advisory group has produced these two documents dispelling the myth about Cardboard and chipboard coffins. Please click the link to find out more.
