What’s the difference between coffins & caskets?

Coffins are tapered at the head and foot and are wide at the shoulders. Caskets are rectangular in shape and are usually constructed of better quality timbers and feature higher standards of workmanship.

You can view the Allison Monkhouse range of Solid Timber Caskets, Solid Timber Coffins and Composite Board Coffins or call us to arrange to view the items in one of our convenient locations.
