Coffin or Casket

The difference between a coffin and a casket is that there is basically one design. Coffins are tapered at the head and foot and are wide at the shoulders. Caskets are rectangular in shape and are usually constructed of better quality timbers and feature higher standards of workmanship. Many people regard the coffin or casket as an important tribute to the deceased and they are therefore selected with care. However, to spend so much that it would mean financial difficulties for those left behind would be misguided.
