Coffins

At Charles Stephens, we pride ourselves on the quality of our coffins.

We work with one of the largest manufacturers of coffins and caskets in the UK, a family run company like ourselves which is also based on the Wirral. Working with them we are able to offer our customers a wide selection of quality coffins and caskets. Every single coffin is tailored to the individual specification of our Funeral Directors. Over 95 per cent of these coffins are Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified. In fact, they are the only company to manufacture FSC certified coffins and coffin sets. This means they ensure that all of the selected materials can be traced back to wood from responsibly managed forests.

Woodland Trust Coffins

Our Woodland Trust Collection can be made in natural unpolished solid wood, high quality weave willow or sustainably sourced FSC boards. All are suitable for woodland burials.

We are delighted to support the Woodland Trust in the work it does, planting more trees, protecting centuries-old trees and restoring woodland so that native trees can grow and thrive.

Our range of coffins are designed to reduce the carbon footprint of a standard coffin, with higher recycled content, reduced energy consumptions and reduced material usage. These coffins are an ideal alternative to cardboard.
