Why are coffins so expensive?

Think of a coffin as a piece of furniture. Some people are willing to buy relatively expensive furniture – others haunt second hand shops for bargains. Most importantly, a coffin must be sturdily constructed in order to protect the dignity of the deceased, ensure the health of others and allow the body to be moved easily from place to place. A modest coffin is entirely satisfactory in this regard but those who wish to provide a more sophisticated looking coffin or casket are free to do so. Our customers are NEVER pressurized into buying a coffin for the deceased at the expense of the living.
