Never an easy subject to tackle but nonetheless, funerals and specifically how to go about selecting the right the casket, coffin or urn for your loved one, is an important, if somewhat sensitive, question.
Physically arranging a funeral need not be either as traumatic or as complicated as you might have initially envisaged and while it may seem like a harrowing time to make such important decisions, perhaps planning the details ahead and narrowing down your choices when you are not in a state of grief is a sensible option. With a clear and more dispassionate head, you can really research and agree upon what type of casket is befitting of your loved one.
Another recommendation is to consider, review and present these decisions to an unconnected friend who can help to guide you in a more matter of fact manner.
That, or refer to our website which has been specifically set up to answer the important but somewhat heart-breaking questions that no one really ever wants to have to ask, but undeniably, every one of us will need to face at some time in the future.
We’ve gone ahead and selected three excellent recommendations today in the best casket ever made category, one of which we hope is truly deserving of your loved one.

Just as a quick clarification as part of our concluding roundup. There’s a common misconception or lack of understanding in the difference between a coffin and a casket and the three options we’ve reviewed today all fall into the casket camp.
A casket will typically be rectangular in shape and of an elaborate design with an open top designed for viewing your dearly departed. A coffin, on the other hand, has a more traditional five shaped side and is tapered towards the shoulder and head, mimicking the physique of the body.
Your job really is to try and meet the wishes of your departed (assuming that they left any instructions or you had previously discussed the subject) by choosing a casket that they would have approved of as their final resting place.
Costs can vary considerably, and you may also want to take into account their personality in choosing something that reflects their individuality.
