Description

This golden willow coffin is available to purchase directly or as part of a funeral being arranged with Natural Endings.

Our Willow Coffins have a slightly golden look, they are hand-worked by traditional basket weavers using age-old methods that have changed very little in over 2000 years. Willow is by far the ultimate in environmental recycling, willow is grown in rows of bushes and once harvested can generate back to the same height within a year. Willow has been known to grow up to 8ft tall annually and has the ability to degrade much more quickly than conventional hardwood. The willow plant can be harvested annually from the same crown for up to 60 years.

They have become popular again lately but are by no means a new idea. In the late 19th century Sir Frances Haden developed wicker coffins. His design had no lid and was to be filled with flowers or earth for natural burial.

A willow coffin is 100% biodegradable, and is suitable for traditional burial, woodland burial, and cremation. It is FFMA tested and certified, and CCSA approved for quality and we can provide certification. They are very strong and tested to bear heavy loads.

Please note

  • We do not provide the coffin with flowers – these are for illustrative purposes only.
  • The coffin that you receive may not match the colour exactly of the coffin displayed on screen. Willow is a natural material and the colour tone may vary harvest to harvest. Also your computer monitor may have different colour settings to ours.
  • All our coffins come with a bio-degradable waterproof lining and a second unbleached cosmetic cotton lining

How can I purchase/order?
You can purchase this coffin securely online via our website, using a credit or debit card, or we can email you an invoice which you can pay by direct bank transfer, which would be payable before the coffin is dispatched.
If you’re choosing this coffin as part of a funeral being arranged with Natural Endings, it will go on the final bill which is payable by direct bank transfer.

Will you send me a receipt?
We will send you a receipt that can be claimed with the rest of the funeral expenses from the person that has died’s estate at a later date. Or you will receive a copy of your order and payment by email for all orders placed online.

What size shall I order?
When we receive your order or enquiry, we will contact you to ask for the details of your funeral director or sometimes the hospital. With your permission, we will call your funeral director (or sometimes the hospital) to discuss the size of coffin required. We’ll then send you a final email confirmation so that you can check that all the details are correct before we confirm your order.

Do I need a nameplate?
Cemeteries and crematoriums require that the coffin is identified with an engraved, biodegradable nameplate. We can send an engraved nameplate with the coffin for £30. Alternatively you could print one off your computer on cardboard or even paint or draw one as long as it has the person’s legal name, date of birth and date of death on it.

When can I expect the coffin to be delivered?
We deliver from Monday to Friday (not weekends) and to the mainland UK only. If you order before noon (Monday to Friday) we aim to deliver it within 48 hours, but it may take a little longer to parts of Scotland. You can have the coffin delivered either to a private address or to a funeral director.

What is your returns policy?
We want you to be entirely happy with your purchase. You have the right to cancel your purchase within 28 days of the transaction, but please ensure:

  • The goods are returned intact (not open and not unpacked) and that the coffin is wrapped in its original packaging to protect it in transit.
  • All original delivery labels are removed.
  • Due to health and safety laws we cannot accept any coffin that has contained a dead person.

We will liaise with you to arrange a collection if you are unhappy with your purchase. Please note we may charge a collection fee.
