Choosing what feels right

As with many things today, the choice of coffins can be a bit overwhelming. You are best to consider a few basic requirements first so that you can get some idea of what you’re looking to achieve before you finally make your selection.

Would you like a coffin or casket?

  • A coffin is wider at the shoulders and narrower towards the feet
  • Caskets are rectangular and the same width at the top as it is at the bottom

Next, you need to decide the type of coffin or casket you would like, taking into consideration the style, material, and colour.  Would you like it to be personalised or traditional?  Have you got an eco-friendly coffin in mind? Perhaps you’d even like to design it yourself?

Many people know exactly what they would like when they see it.  However, we’re here to talk you through the options in as much or as little detail as you wish – the choice is always yours.

A huge thank you to Morton's for providing an incredibly professional, yet caring and supportive service helping us to arrange the funerals for both my parents at different times. I could not fault their professionalism and the guidance that we received. Thank you.
