Different Types Of Caskets

Losing a loved one is indescribably difficult. Making decisions during this time is especially overwhelming, and choosing the right casket is a particular emotional burden.

Understanding the different types of caskets available can help make this process a little bit easier. Let’s take some time to explore various options, from traditional caskets to eco-friendly choices. For a personalized consultation and support, please reach out to our team at Robinson Funeral Home.

Wood Caskets

Wood caskets, often a traditional choice with a timeless appeal, bring warmth and elegance. Varieties of wood used include hardwoods such as oak, mahogany, and pine.

Each type of wood lends a unique grain pattern and color to the casket, making it a beautiful tribute to your loved one’s life.

Features and characteristics of wood caskets include their durability and high-quality finish. They can also be adorned with carvings or embellishments for an added personal touch.

Metal Caskets

Metal caskets, known for their sturdy construction and sleek appearance, are another popular choice. Among the metal options available, steel is common due to its affordability and durability.

More luxurious options include copper and bronze caskets, both renowned for their natural resistance to rust and corrosion. Metal caskets are often available in a variety of colors and finishes and can be fitted with additional features, such as gasket seals, for added protection.

Burial Vaults

Burial vaults, also known as burial containers or grave liners, are another type of casket we offer at Robinson Funeral Home. These structures are typically made of concrete, metal, or plastic and are placed inside the ground before the casket is lowered into it.

The main purpose of a burial vault is to provide additional protection for the casket and its contents. They help prevent the ground from caving in over time, protecting the casket from the elements and preserving the integrity of the gravesite.

Eco-Friendly Caskets

For those who lived a life mindful of their environmental footprint, eco-friendly caskets are a fitting choice. They are made from renewable, biodegradable materials such as bamboo, wicker, or cardboard.

Apart from being a sustainable option, these caskets offer a simplistic and natural beauty. The use of eco-friendly caskets reduces the environmental impact of traditional burials, making it a considerate option for our planet.
