Types Of Caskets

By Kyle Oliver

All the time, it is never easy to promptly accept the death of someone you love. There is nothing that can replace the emptiness caused by the loss of an individual who is significant in your life.

The family members left behind by someone dear to them must still see to practical matters although powerful emotions of sadness and grief threaten to overwhelm them. These matters are the planning for the funeral service, arrangement of the burial, and the picking out of the most appropriate casket. A casket is a box that will serve as a container for the remains of the person who passed away. Most individuals are not mindful that the casket is available in different types and materials. This article will enumerate the various casket types to help people select the most suitable one for a dearly departed.

The first thing to be kept in the mind when buying a casket is the material that it is made of. The basic choice that you have is between wooden caskets that can be made of mahogany, cherry or maple, and the metal caskets, which are generally made of stainless steel and later applied with a coat of paint of your choice. While making a final decision on the type of casket, you should keep in mind not only the appearance but also the expenditure that you will have to make.

As far as the make is concerned, you have a choice between half couch or full couch, which determines the outer cover of the casket. In a half couch lid, only the top part of the body is displayed, while the full couch makes it possible to view the whole body.

You can even select from a wide range of casket sizes. Hence, you should have a precise idea of the size of the body to see if you will need any alterations to be carried out on one of the standard sizes.

The next essential aspect to think about is where you will buy the casket. You could purchase a casket from good casket supply retailer; they may also accept custom-built orders if you prefer this type of casket. Funeral homes offer a selection of caskets, although their stocks tend to be few in number and may be more expensive than from a direct casket supplier. You can also choose from a wide variety of casket designs through the Internet, where funeral supplies stores may also have an online store. Always bear in mind that when you order a casket through the Internet, shipping and handling costs will be included the final retail price.
