Alternative Coffins

Below is a selection of our Brighton funeral director‘s eco-friendly range of coffins, made from natural and / or environmentally friendly sourced materials.

Wicker Coffins
We tend to use two main suppliers for our wicker coffins namely Tributes Ltd located in Angmering, West Sussex and Ecoffins located in Sittingbourne in Kent.

The two suppliers provide slightly different designed coffins and the sizes are different too. These coffins are not bespokely ordered but are chosen to fit as near to the size that your loved one needs to ensure a comfortable fit; hence why we compare the two suppliers.

Cardboard
Our cardboard coffins are sourced from Greenfield Creations. We have chosen this company to supply us, with their market leading, environmentally friendly, cardboard coffin which is made from 100% biodegradable cardboard and are stronger than other eco-friendly cardboard coffins, holding up to 23 stone (150 Kg).

Picture Coffins
In addition to our traditional, willow and cardboard range of coffins we are pleased to offer a range of picture coffins. They are covered in biodegradable paper or material wraps, with graphics printed using environmentally friendly inks.
