Choosing a Coffin
Choosing a coffin is often one of the hardest aspects of arranging a funeral. For some families it is the most difficult, visual and emotional element associated with discussing the funeral arrangements. Remember, this is a natural part of the grieving process.
Mears & Cotterill Funeral Directors offer an extensive range of quality coffins, and the funeral arranger or funeral director will take you through the various elements that will help you choose which is the most appropriate for your needs, whilst satisfying your own personal preference. Your decision will probably be influenced by one or more of the following factors:
- What you believe reflects the personality or wishes of the person whose funeral it is
- Whether you have any strong ethical requirements, particularly around the green credentials of the coffin
- What aesthetically you like the look of
- Whether you have a specific budget in mind – the individual price of each of our coffins will always be shared with you when making your choice
If you have a specific request for a coffin that is not included within our extensive range, we are happy to source an alternative for you.
