                  Cherry: Cherry is a beautiful hardwood with a warm, creamy reddish colouring. Caskets are available in a variety of styles.
Maple: Maple is a popular choice for hardwood caskets. It encompasses strength and beauty and is wear resistant with a grain that can either be straight or wavy and has a natural lustre.
Pecan: A strong, heavy hardwood that is light in colour, pecan caskets are popular among families desiring a fine hardwood casket, but who wish to moderate their expenses.
Eco-friendly: There are several options available for those who are environmentally conscious, while still combining beauty and strength. Please ask us for information on the options.
Metal caskets
Bronze: Beautiful finishes and solid construction delivers the very finest of metal caskets, encompassing superior quality, strength, and durability.
Copper: Naturally non-rusting, a copper casket has a rich beauty, with a selection of finishes available.
Stainless steel: A natural choice for those who desire the added protection of a metal casket but at a more moderate price. Stainless steel is a popular choice, with a selection of styles to choose from.
Carbon steel: Available in a wide choice of colours, finishes, and style, a carbon steel casket can have various thicknesses, enabling greater flexibility when choosing a casket.
Cremation containers
When choosing a cremation service, there is also a choice of caskets:
Traditional wood casket: Adds warmth and beauty to a viewing service.
Wood cremation casket: Specifically constructed to be used for cremation. These are usually less expensive than traditional wood but still crafted with the same quality and care.
Hardboard casket: Featuring the look of a hardwood casket but constructed to be lighter in weight and fully combustible.
Cardboard Cremation Casket: A rigid waxed bottom container, with no cloth interior, is our most budget friendly choice. As we cremate at our own facility in Amherst, NS, it means we don’t have to have a wooden container for travel purposes, and allows us to keep your costs down.
Rental casket: Designed especially for reuse, they comprise an exterior shell with an internal container. The internal container remains with the body at the crematory; it is only the shell of the casket that is reused.
Urns
An urn is a small container used for holding the cremated remains. Urns may be buried, placed in a mausoleum, or kept at home. There is a huge choice of styles, prices, and materials, including bronze, hardwood, marble, glass, acrylic, and much more.
Please feel free to ask for more information or advice on our selections.
