Coffins and Ashes Caskets
At H Kemp and Son Limited we understand that it is sometimes difficult, when arranging a funeral of a loved one, to make difficult decisions in a short time frame, and because of this we don’t show you catalogues of coffins and ask you to choose one. Instead we provide you with an oak veneered coffin, as shown below, as part of our funeral services and at no extra cost. It is made from materials that are from sustainable sources and finished to a high standard, carefully prepared and trimmed by ourselves.
If, however, you or your loved one have a particular request for a different type or style of coffin and you would like to look at other options, we are able to provide you with an extensive range to choose from at an additional cost, some of which are illustrated below. We can supply you with Eco-friendly options such as Bamboo, Willow, Wicker and Cardboard coffins. If you prefer a solid wood coffin with embellishment we can show you an extensive range of woods and finishes. In addition we can assist you in designing a bespoke picture coffin to reflect the personality of your loved one and for those of you who wish to add a bit of sparkle we can also provide you with glitter coffins in various colours.
We only use suppliers who are registered with the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council). If you have a particular request, please ask us about how we can help you to achieve your wishes.
Examples of Our Coffin Range
Following a cremation, if you request that your loved one’s ashes be returned to you, they will be contained within a biodegradable container provided by the crematorium. These containers are suitable for interment directly into a grave or Garden of Rest plot. However, if you wish to purchase an alternative receptacle for your loved one’s ashes to rest then we are able to offer a wide range of options for you to choose from as shown below
