Our traditional range is all British made out of high quality, sustainably sourced woods. There are many different styles available, from contemporary and simple through to highly ornate and extravagant. The range includes options for solid wood, veneers, viewing caskets and ornate panelling. All in a selection of different finishes. A few examples are shown below.
Alternative coffins and caskets
Our alternative range includes coffins and caskets made from willow, seagrass, wool, banana leaves and bamboo. We can also supply picture coffins and caskets, handcrafted ceramic and paper urns, beautiful wooden urns turned out of fine timbers, and small brass keepsakes. Many of these can also be personalised for you. A few examples are shown below.
Scatter Tubes and Scatterpods®
A modern alternative specifically designed for the scattering of your loved one’s ashes. Available in a range of sizes, each has a high-quality finish, seamless design and is made from recycled and biodegradable materials, making them an environmentally-friendly choice. A few examples are shown below.
Ashes into Glass
Ashes into Glass jewellery is handcrafted by James Watts, Bill Rhodes and their team. They expertly layer together cremation ashes, coloured glass crystals and clear molten glass to create beautiful, lasting tributes to keep with you forever. Each stone is unique and just like your loved one, will possess its own character. A few examples are shown below.
Coffin plates and fixings
A range of fixings and custom-designed plates can be attached to most types of coffin and casket. Both religious and non-denominational symbols and accessories are available.
