What is a funeral casket

A funeral casket is a rectangle shaped box in which a deceased person can be buried. Whereas coffins are traditionally used for burials in the UK, caskets are becoming more popular. Funeral caskets come in a variety of types including full couch caskets, over sized caskets, metal caskets and wooden caskets. The main reason for choosing a funeral casket over a coffin is superior build quality and more space internally due to them not being tapered off at one end.

Choosing the right casket

Choosing a casket depends on a variety of factors such as cost, design and the preferences of the deceased’s family. In general, caskets are larger than coffins and so give a more spacious presentation. If you plan on having an open casket burial (as is the custom in some cultures) then you may opt for a casket or even a full couch casket.

On the other hand you may also want to consider the material and ornamentations of the casket itself. Wooden caskets look more traditional and closer in design to coffins. However, they usually feature high gloss finishes and velvet interiors which are very fitting when burying a loved one. Metal caskets by their very nature are heavier, sturdier and more modern in appearance. Having said that wooden caskets can seem to be more befitting the older generation. Many caskets also have handles and rails to help in their movement or if they need to be carried.
