|Why not pawn some of the deceased persons nicer items to finance a classic looking cardboard coffin.
Prices start at only £100 up to around £300 including a 70 micron crem-film liner, many people say is a lot of money for a box, but they are constructed from 100% pure carton board.
The natural brown finish looks very Eco friendly, which is a nice excuse to buy one, you can self decorate to give whatever finish you like.
Rope or plastic handles are for decoration only at £30 extra per set.
Not suitable for prolonged exposure to moisture, for example damp or rainy days, and not for keeping in our chapel fridge overnight due to condensation. If the deceased was 14 stone or over a cardboard coffin will not be suitable, this highlights one of the financial advantages of dying from a wasting disease.
Although we like to believe our cardboard coffin is environmentally friendly this does not apply to fixtures and fittings including liners used for cremations, however what does biodegradable mean? We like to think it means after several thousand years of internment, and there is nobody about today available to double check this.
