A coffin can often be the most expensive part of a funeral (and is a requirement of the law), and that’s why we have a range of affordable coffins and caskets included in our range.
Our affordable coffins are simple and low-key, still serving the purpose they’re designed for, but without the higher-end wood finishes and decorative handles.

A coffin is typically shaped like a body, being narrower at the head and feet sections and wider at the shoulders. It has a tapered hexagonal shape. A coffin has a hinged lid that opens in 2 parts, allowing for a viewing of your loved one from the shoulders up.
A casket is more symmetrical in its design, often being rectangular or quadrilateral in shape. A casket traditionally has a consistent shape from top to bottom (i.e. it doesn’t taper like a coffin). The hinged lid of a casket opens in full, allowing for a full viewing of your loved one.
The prices of coffins and caskets can vary greatly depending on what you choose. Our coffin prices are disclosed with our funeral packages so you will clearly see what the coffin is worth. The costs vary depending on the type of wood, the size and the metal options (for hinges, handles & decorations) you choose. As a guideline, our coffins and caskets range from $300 to $89,000.
The best way to know if a coffin or casket is environmentally friendly, is to ask your funeral director when you’re planning the funeral. Most coffins and some caskets are made from medium density fibreboard (MDF). The most environmentally friendly option for a coffin or casket would be solid timber such as pine or wicker.
