The Chiltern – Oak veneer DM RL
A veneered oak coffin with double mouldings (DM) and a raised panel on the lid (RL). Illustrated here with 700/4 metal handles and six wreath holders. This coffin could be stained darker if you wish, and it could also have plastic handles. The raised lid is nice, however if you are placing a lovely flowing floral tribute on top, the effect may be completely lost under the flowers. You can therefore have this one without the raised lid.

And as it will be much lighter, it would be easier for family members to carry.
