Choosing a coffin to use during cremation can be a daunting task but with the right information it can be much easier. While coffins are expensive, they play a big role in a funeral. You, therefore, cannot just decide to go on with the funeral without one especially where your beliefs or religion dictate otherwise.

You have a number of coffin types to choose from; the most common being wood and metal. Wooden coffins are said to be environment friendly and you have the option of wood laminates, solid hardwood or plywood that is cloth-covered. With this, you can also choose to have finishes that have been hand-rubbed, multiple sanding or hand curved designs.

When choosing wood, you also have to know that you will incur additional expenses; milling and harvesting labor as well transport costs. Mahogany is normally transported long distances because it is an indigenous species.

As for metal, you can choose stainless steel or steel and their durability depends on the metals chemical composition. There are also the bronze and copper coffins which are durable and rust-resistant. Bronze coffins also have some copper in their composition and so they are the best choice if you are looking for a coffin with the finest construction and material.

However, for those who are looking for cremation coffins, then metal is probably not the best way to go. Choose the most suitable wood coffin and once the cremation is complete, you can look for urns for sale to store your ashes in.
