Caskets are manufactured in various types of materials. Examples of the different types are bronze, copper, stainless steel, wood and steel. Families would make a choice based on eye appeal or perhaps the material used might represent something in the life of the individual. By this I mean you might choose a steel casket because your loved one may have worked with steel during their lifetime or wood because they were a wood worker. Whatever the reason, you should be comfortable with your choice and it should represent your family and your loved one.
The interiors of the caskets may be personalized also. Some of the casket interiors are standard and cannot be changed; however, there are a few companies that will customize interiors. You may customize an interior by changing the color, style, or by having a theme embroider into the casket fabric. The theme could be a garden scene, hunting scene, or perhaps a military branch logo. You may also wish to consider engraving the name and dates of your loved one on the outside of the casket.
