Why did we include details about the coffin?

Being an environmentally friendly company helps us reduce our impact on the environment. We think this is important when choosing a direct cremation service, as many funeral directors use veneered coffins that release pollutants into the atmosphere.

We provide a simple solid pine coffin to each client, carefully selected for its durability, elegance and good eco-credentials. Our coffins are made from wood sourced from FSC Certified forests where the trees are sustainably managed.

We also do not use cardboard coffins for a number of reasons. Cardboard leaves a residue in the cremator and does not help fuel the cremation process in the same way that wood does. This means that more gas is required to carry out a cremation, entirely negating any environmental benefit. Plus, cardboard coffins are actually more expensive than wooden ones.
