Coffins & Caskets

When farewelling a loved one, the choice of coffin or casket is important and should be treated with care

falling leaves edited

Selwyn Allen has a selection of more than 20 Australian-made coffins and caskets, catering to a wide range of tastes and budgets.

Rectangular in shape, caskets have a hinged lid and are fully lined. By contrast, coffins are wide at the shoulders and taper down to the foot and head.

Selwyn and his staff can help you make the most suitable choice and advise on how you can personalise the coffin or casket if required.

We recognise that your choice may be influenced by a range of factors, including:

  • Respecting the deceased’s final wishes.
  • Your cultural background and/or religious beliefs.
  • Your choice of a burial or cremation.
  • Your budget and style considerations.

Our selection starts with a basic stained chipboard coffin costing just $960, while the more elaborate Sherwood Oak Traditional Solid Oak Coffin with triple deck lid is priced at $3,470.

Caskets are generally made from better quality timbers and symbolic of higher quality craftmanship.

Our Australian Classic Solid Plantation Timber Casket with a walnut finish costs $2,680.

By comparison, the highest-quality Australian-made casket – a Charles Premium Solid Red Cedar with velvet interior – is priced at $10,690.
