Environmental coffins

Most modern coffins are made from unsustainable or man-made materials such as veneered timber. However, studies have shown cremating these materials has a negative impact on our environment.

At Bennetts Funeral Directors we have sourced a wide variety of environmentally friendly coffins to offer you an alternative option to the traditional oak coffin.
