Eco-friendly coffins

Wicker Coffins

We are able to offer a range of eco-friendly 'green' wicker, willow, bamboo, sea-grass and water hyacinth coffins and caskets which are a 100% natural product and are both suitable for burial or cremation. Wicker coffins come in a variety of shades either dark or light coloured. Sea-grass coffins are light-coloured. For those wishing to avoid the traditional 'coffin' shape, the casket can be made with rounded ends.

Floral adornment such as the garland below can be added around the circumference of these type of coffins, by arrangement with a florist, giving them a much more natural appearance

Coffins made from Wool

Made using 100% British wool, the Natural Legacy coffin is a softer, gentler and greener way to say goodbye.

The wool coffin is suitable for both burial and cremation and was featured on the Yorkshire TV series 'Emmerdale' for the funeral of the fictional character 'Gemma' in March 2014.


Cardboard Coffins

Cardboard coffins can be as simple as they sound or can be decorated with images you may feel appropriate to your loved one. Please ask us for a brochure if you are thinking of using a cardboard coffin.
