Territory Funerals in Darwin and Palmerston helps families with the funeral planning process after a loved one passes away. Part of the service we provide includes helping families choose the best coffin or casket for their deceased loved one. When you hire Territory Funerals, you should know that we have access to any kind of coffin that you could imagine.
Selecting a Coffin
We will ask you a few questions, check if your loved one had any requests they made before their passing and then our funeral directors will choose the most appropriate and elegant coffin that fits your budget. However, we can also take your input and make sure the coffin is precisely how you or your loved one imagined
At Territory Funerals we can help you decide on the ideal coffin that you will use for the burial of your loved one. Not only will it be the perfect coffin for burial but it will be elegant and beautiful enough to have on display during the funeral ceremony. We can also arrange flowers and other ornaments around the coffin should you have a preference in this area.
Setting a Coffin Budget
If neither of those options is a factor in your circumstances, we will sit down with you and discuss the costs of the various funeral, burial and memorial ceremonies. We can take out the coffin cost and let you know how much you are looking at spending. It makes selecting a budget for the coffin a little easier because you know the amount you will spend independently of that purchase.
If budget is not an issue, a bronze or copper coffin would be an excellent option for your loved one. Stainless steel and carbon steel coffins are also fitting choices if you wish to lower the cost but they are not as durable as the former two.
Families that prefer a more traditional aesthetic may want to choose a timber coffin for their loved one’s burial. There are some fantastic hardwood options available which include mahogany, cherry, maple, oak, pecan, pine and walnut. We can help you look over the colour and design options with each type of wood, along with their respective pros and cons.
Territory Funerals can also help with other matters related to coffin selection such as the size of the coffin and any added features. If you have any questions about coffin selection, call us today!
