JC Atkinson, the leading independent manufacturer of coffins, caskets and urns, has acquired English Made Coffins and will be selling the Herefordshire based company’s complete range from 1st May 2019. English Made Coffins, with their recognisable butterfly motif, are handcrafted with care and thought. They provide a beautiful resting place for loved ones. Solid wood, load-bearing bar handles are fitted, making them strong and easily manoeuverable.
The finishing details on the coffins have been thoughtfully selected to harmonise with the two different styles: The Oval and The Classic. Each comes with a handcrafted personalised book shaped nameplate, where additional personal messages can be included. A keepsake butterfly, attached with a simple pin system can be removed and kept after the funeral service. They come in three different wood species: The Oak Tree; The Walnut Tree and The Maple Tree, which are finished with a soft-sheen, eco-friendly, water-based lacquer and are suitable for both burial and cremation.
Greg Cranfield, Managing Director at JC Atkinson, said of the new acquisition:
We aim to provide the highest standard of ethically hand-crafted products, while maintaining exceptional levels of quality, so adding English Made Coffins to the JC Atkinson portfolio felt like a natural fit
