One of the most common questions we get asked is what’s the difference between a coffin or a casket?
Coffins are tapered at the feet and the head and widened at the shoulders.
Caskets are Rectangular in shape and commonly have half couched lids meaning your loved one can only be viewed from the waist up.
(This is only an option, all caskets can be opened all the way up meaning you can view your loved one from head to toe)
