Coffins & Caskets
John Heath & Sons provide simple coffins and more bespoke coffins. We can still produce hand-crafted coffins in our own workshops from solid timber, and indeed can produce an Upholstered Cremation Coffin, a Solid Mahogany Coffin, or exclusively a Traditional Solid English Oak Coffin. They are still made to the designs drawn up by the original John Heath. To find out more about our coffins please follow this link. Solid English Oak Coffins.
We are very conscious of the need to protect the environment and conserve natural resources. Our policy is to buy timber from sustainable sources which are being properly managed and replanted “one for one”.
We are in the forefront of promoting the use of environmentally friendly materials in coffin production; particularly for cremation to conform with the most recent regulations on air pollution control. We also provide various different modern alternatives, including wicker/willow, bamboo, leaf and even cardboard coffins.
