The Cavendish – Utile

This solid wood ‘Utile’ coffin has decorative panel sides, and a raised panel on the lid. This model comes with 600/4 metal handles and has six wreath holder. The metal handles make it unsuitable for cremation, however there are plastic alternatives that look exactly the same.  You can have this coffin, and all the others here, without the raised lid if you wish.
