There is usually only immediate family and the undertaker and crematorium staff in attendance and the casket is not in public view at any time. This casket is designed to provide the cheapest possible wooden casket for a direct Cremation. The MDF coffins are lower in price than the plywood and have an excellent surface finish for staining, painting or decorating, either when painted, stained or Bare Standard MDF coffins are priced at $440 and XL coffins size 8 are priced at $480 and size 9 at $540 Plywood coffins are more “natural’ looking and are up to 10 Kg lighter. They are able to be painted, like MDF, but the surface often contains slight imperfections from the manufacturing process and this may be visible through the paint. Stain, however, works well on plywood coffins and enhances the natural grain in the sheet. Standard Plywood coffins are $480 and XL plywood coffins size 8 are $570. Size9 XL Plywood coffins are $600. Please note plywood XL coffins are not held in stock, so normal delivery times will be extended by up to 2 weeks Select Size There are 3 things to consider when selecting a coffin size. The length of the coffin must be greater than the height of the deceased, plus an allowance of at least 5 Cm and an extra allowance if shoes or a hat is to be worn. ...MORE The coffin width must be sufficient to accommodate the shoulders and hips of the deceased. The elbows usually are close to the hips and may end up slightly wider, they will be close to the apex of the coffin and the shoulders are about 30 Cm higher. The chart below gives approximate dimensions for both measurements. The height of the coffin is often determined by the size of the Puku (stomach). It is advisable to measure this with the person lying down, as gravity will cause a certain amount of sagging once the muscles relax. Don’t forget that if someone is very ill, they will often lose weight before they pass. It is always worth remembering that if there is any doubt about whether the coffin may be a bit tight, it is always worth going to a larger size. There is never a problem if a coffin is too big, but it can be a catastrophe if it is too small. Carried Away cannot take any responsibility for the size selection, so please choose with care.

We have two colours of Handles from which you can choose. HardwareGoldSilverLid screws will be supplied in the same colour as the handles.FanCrossWe also have two styles of Lid Screws from which you can choose.Select Linings Plastic Lining This is fitted to contain any fluids that may be released within the coffin and is usually required by the undertaker. All Carried Away coffins include the plastic lining in their price. For Flat Packs, the lining is supplied cut to shape and is simply stapled to the walls of the coffin with the stapler and staples included in the flat pack. Decorative Lining The decorative lining is provided to tidy up the inside of the coffin and hide the inside walls and plastic lining. There is no requirement to have a decorative lining and if the coffin is to be closed from public view, there is a strong economic logic...MORE to not use one. Some people however do not like to think of their loved one in an unlined coffin, even with a closed lid and that is fine too. The decision is entirely optional and Carried Away will not try to influence your decision one way or the other. Decorative linings consist of two parts, the bottom lining which is cut to shape and fitted in the same way as the plastic lining and the side lining which is stapled near to the top of the coffin sides. The side lining is designed to fold out over the top of the sides and ends to provide a cover for the top edges of the sides while the coffin is open and falls down the inside walls onto or near the bottom of the coffin. The staples are inserted under a small flap of the satin that wraps over the top of the coffin walls. The part that wraps over the sides is folded in when the coffin is closed. We offer decorative linings in three different materials to try and accommodate various tastes and budgets. The cheapest lining that we offer is unbleached calico, which is made from cotton and has a natural buff colour and is often favoured by the eco conscious. Unbleached linings cost $90. We also offer bleached calico linings which are a bright white colour, but are otherwise the same as the unbleached lining. Bleached calico linings are $95. The most expensive lining we offer is the white satin lining. Satin has a smooth glossy finish, as opposed to the coarser, flat finish of the calico. Satin linings are $130. We do not stock linings for XL coffins at this time, but we can usually have them made to order with in a few days if required. They can be sent to us to be fitted in an assembled coffin or directly to you if you have ordered a Flat Pack. The price of XL linings is $15 more than the standard lining of the same material. This cost will not be reflected in the price box and will be charged separately. Select Linings*Unbleached calicoBleached CalicoWhite satinWithout LiningsSelect Accessories Pillows All Carried Away coffins are supplied with a hard pillow, made of MDF or Ply, to help raise the head into a more natural position for viewing. The hard pillow is secured to the base of the coffin below the plastic or decorative linings and is therefore not seen. Some people like to put a small soft pillow on the top of the decorative lining and the hard pillow. This is purely for aesthetic reasons and is not in any way a requirement. Select Pillows*Unbleached calico pillowBleached calico PillowSatin pillowWithout pillow Top Sheet In the same way as the soft pillow, a top sheet is purely a personal choice. Our top sheets are simply a cover that is designed to reach from the feet to chest height and tuck in either side of the deceased. They are hemmed, but otherwise just a plain piece of material. Select Top Sheet*Unbleached calico coverBleached calico coverSatin coverWithout sheet WE do not stock Top Sheets for XL coffins at this time, but can usually have them made to order within a few days if required. They can be sent with an assembled coffin or directly to you if you have ordered a flat pack. The price of an XL top sheet is $5 more than the standrd sheet of the same material.
