Coffins & Urns

One of the important decisions to make when arranging a funeral is to select a coffin (also known as a casket) and/or an urn for ashes.

A casket is required for both burials and cremations; urns are only needed for cremations.

Your choice will be based on what appeals; what you regard as a fitting tribute to your loved one; and the cost.

You are able to view the options for coffins and urns at both our Howick and Manurewa funeral homes. Our staff will be able to guide you through the selection, so you can compare styles and prices.
