Advice when buying a coffin

If you are organising a cremation, check with the crematorium to find out if they have any
specific requirements. For example, some crematoria will allow shrouded bodies to be cremated, others will not; some will permit coffins made by families, others will only allow quality assured and certified coffins produced by trade manufacturers.

Once you know what type of coffin or shroud you are permitted, choose the type you want from a supplier who is prepared to sell directly to the public. You will need to make sure you order the correct size, so you’ll need to measure the height of the person who has died, and also the width of their body at the widest part (usually the shoulders). Make sure that the supplier can guarantee delivery by the day before the funeral at the latest.
