Do You Need a Casket?

We at Arbutus Funeral Service understand that planning a funeral service for a deceased family member or a loved one entails numerous decisions. However, many people today prefer cremation. When you preplan, you can clarify all of your needs and requirements with our funeral director and get a better understanding of the services they offer. This expert will assist you in making your selections and guarantee that you receive the package and services you require.

The Types Of Caskets

At Arbutus Funeral Service, we've seen that many individuals are unsure whether a casket is required for cremation. The answer is yes; however, the casket does not have to be like one used for a funeral service.

Caskets constructed of hardwood or metal could be pricey, and if you intend to be cremated, a modest casket will suffice; wooden and cardboard caskets are two alternatives. These are primarily provided by third-party vendors and available in various types, including:

  • Manufactured wood
  • Semi-metal
  • Wood
  • Metal
  • Biodegradable

You can choose a conventional or customized casket based on your specifications and budget. The crematorium's incinerator will accept only wooden caskets; metal caskets will not be permitted. If you choose a customized coffin, you can choose between various materials, themes, and decorations. The casket you opt for will depend on your preferences and budget. You can also discuss these options with your family before making a final choice.

Most funeral homes provide a complete package from which you can choose one which best meets your specific requirements. You can have detailed discussions about your particular preferences with the funeral director and then finalize your decision. We, at Arbutus Funeral Service, organize funeral services.
