Why Families Choose Caskets
When a loved one dies, families must choose an appropriate container to hold their loved one before, during and after the funeral. While many families have traditionally chosen coffins for this purpose, another common choice is a casket. Different from traditional coffins, caskets are larger, more substantial vessels made from the finest materials with unique features to help memorialise the life of a loved one.
Caskets are selected for a variety of reasons. Many families choose caskets because of long-standing family traditions. For some, caskets are appropriate due to a specific religious or ethnic background. Still other families simply want the very best for their loved-one and feel a casket is the right choice to honour the person they have lost.
