The shape is the only difference – a coffin is tapered and usually with a removable lid, while a casket is of rectangular shape usually with an attached lid.

If someone has a large frame or is tall, a casket can be a more comfortable fit, otherwise it’s just a personal or cultural preference.

We recommend a coffin made of natural materials, sourced from local environments, responsibly managed forests, and approved by cemetery operators as being cleanly returnable to the earth, whether by cremation or by burial.

  • At Natural Grace, instead of buying a coffin for a person who is going to have a shrouded burial, we offer an Artisan coffin with our love, free of charge. This means that your person travels in the community coffin for their funeral service and/or burial.
  • Our community coffin is also available for use for ceremonies when a simple shrouded cremation option had been chosen. Following a funeral service, your person is returned to our care and transferred into a timber shroud bearer prior to the cremation.

Anyone who is in good health with reasonably good mobility (ie. can walk without being aided, has no balance issues or is not recovering from an injury or operation). Teenagers through to grandparents can be part of the 6 pall bearers required although many more hands can fit around the coffin or shroud if desired. Whilst traditionally the role of men in a family, pallbearing is a sacred honour that all people can take part in and gender should not be an issue when deciding who shall carry your person.

No, they are not. In some instances, a mechanical lowering device is used. This can be determined by the Cemetery Trust, the availability of pall bearers, or the specific circumstances. However all shrouded burials require pallbearers.
