Different Types of Caskets

A Traditional Wood Casket
Some people choose a cremation casket for the same reasons they would have chosen it for burial.

A Cremation Casket
These caskets are made of wood or wood by-products and resemble a traditional casket but do not contain any metal parts.

An Alternate Container
These encasements are rectangular boxes made of corrugated cardboard and are the least expensive types of container

A Rental Casket
Some funeral homes have specific caskets they rent to families choosing cremation. These are traditional caskets that are reused. This rental casket is used during the service, wake, or funeral. Before the deceased is taken to the crematory, the body is removed from the rental casket and placed in an alternative container for cremating.
