The funeral must go on

With floodwaters crippling much of Penang, Malaysia, daily life has ground to a halt for most residents.

But for one family trying to give a relative a final send-off, there was little choice but to improvise and use a small boat to ferry the casket through the flooded streets to the funeral home.

Expression Coffin + Harley Davidson = very cool

It’s a pleasure seeing one of our Expression Coffins leaving through our front gates – especially behind a Harley Davidson!! Particularly, when we know that it’s going to make a more meaningful funeral for a family.

Whether it’s motorcycles, movie memorabilia, mushroom hunting, model building or mud wrestling; we create amazing coffin designs to suit every family’s needs.

Whenever one of your client families suggests their loved one had a special interest or a passion for something, let them know that we can design a customised Expression Coffin just for them.

A special coffin for a local hero [video]

We were very proud and honoured to see one of our special Expression Coffin designs on the televised funeral of local hero and police officer Senior Constable Brett Forte recently.

Senior Constable Forte was posthumously presented with policing’s highest honour – the Valour Award – for removing his colleagues out of harm’s way after he had been fatally shot.

The moving public service was attended by thousands of mourners who turned out to pay their respects to the officer and his family. The video eulogy depicted images of Mr Forte at the beach and his coffin was fittingly covered in a full-length picture of a surfer riding a perfect wave.



The Queensland Police service shared images of Senior Constable Forte’s Expression Coffin on their social media accounts

You’ll be amazed at the care and craftsmanship that goes into making our beautiful Artisan casket [video]

Our award-winning Artisan casket is created with the utmost care and attention to detail. It has a restrained material use which minimises its environmental impact and its one-piece arched lid removes completely.

The Artisan’s low coffin sides allows for easier, more intimate viewings. Family can sit with the deceased without having to stand.

The casket is supplied with an Australian premium wool fleece mattress & pillow and is part of our Memorial Tree Program.

Its internal dimensions are: 195 x 57 x 33 [L x W x D (cm)]

Optional extras for the Artisan are a:

  • soft bamboo blanket; and
  • a special crucifix.

Please note that the Artisan lid that we stock in Australia is the plain, natural timber finish only. As shown in the image above.
