Coffins & Caskets

Looking after your loved one

Our team will treat your loved one with the upmost dignity and respect throughout their stay with us. From the moment they enter our care until their final resting place, our highly experience team and our state of the art facilities will give you comfort that your loved one is receiving the best care.

Chapel of rest

Once we have the choice of coffin, all preparation will be carried out for you to visit our chapel of rest.


Should you wish to provide clothing these could be brought to us in due course, alternatively we would supply a shroud.

A telephone call in advance of your visit would be appreciated and a time will be arranged with you and your family. Should you require any locks of hair or fingerprints returning to you, please let us know and we shall arrange whilst your loved one is in our care.
