Casket, Coffin or Shroud

All the caskets, coffins or shrouds we offer are either of solid wood construction
sourced from sustainably managed forests or composite natural materials. Each one is trimmed in natural fibres – cottons, linens or pure wools.

A range of natural caskets are on display in ‘The Box Room’ at 45 Haining Street. Curious? Call us and make an appointment to see what New Zealand designers and craftsmen have created.

If you are organising a funeral without using a funeral company but need to buy a casket, coffin or shroud –  contact us.
