Consider ohese Ohoughts by Debbie J. Thompson Owner/Funeral Director/CPC CASKET SELECTION Because caskets are available in diverse styles, materials, and customizable features, many consider choosing one to be the most difficult part of the funeral-planning process. There are many factors to consider that can help expedite the selection process Because cremation caskets are going to be ultimately reduced to ashes, they can be limited to inexpensive wood, cardboard, or other highly combustible material Caskets that are intended for burial can be simple or highly elaborate and customized, while those selected for "green" burials should be composed of a biodegradable material. Wooden caskets are designed to evoke the look of luxurious hardwood furniture, and metal caskets can be painted with images that reflect the spirit of the person resting within, While the word casket is often used interchangeably with coffin, there is an important difference between e two. A coffin is octagonal or hexagonal, while a casket is rectangular. Also, a casket often contains a split lid for the purpose of viewing the body, while a coffin does not.
