Hand made willow coffins and urns
Beautiful, natural and traditional coffins and urns, crafted with love and care here in Moray.
These coffins and urns are hand made to your individual specifications, using local willow and following time honoured traditions.
You might have a particular design in mind for the item you’re after. Or like the look of one of our coffins, urns or shrouds but would like it with a particular pattern, a specific colour or in a different shape.
Among many other things, you can specify:
- colours of willow or felt
- patterns included
- what materials are used alongside the willow or felt
- type of lid fastening (for coffins and urns)
For a coffin or urn, we can integrate into the weave particular treasures that you might want to be included; shells, driftwood and seaweed from a favorite beach, cuttings from a particular garden or hedgerow or woodland, material from an item of clothing, even the garden rake! For a felted shroud, we can stitch, needle felt or applique anything that holds significance into the piece. You’re very welcome to arrange a visit to the Pole Barn to see some of the pieces we have in stock to get more of an idea of what you’d like.
Whatever you have in mind, do get in touch and we can talk through what you’re after.

Each coffin comes with strong rope handles, lid fastenings and a blank wooden name plate ready for engraving. All our coffins are 100% biodegradable. If the coffin is intended for cremation, 8 screws are used to attach two wooden runners to the base. We stock 6 adult size coffin: 4’6”, 5′, 5’6”, 5’10”, 6′, 6’10” and smaller coffins for children and babies. Each is 22-24” wide. All measurements are internal sizes. Personalised coffins can be made to any size. We also have a range of pet coffins in stock.
All our urns are a unique shape, although they all have a very similar volume which gives plenty of room for a large adult’s ashes. The fastenings on our urns are all very individual, using local drift wood or sandstone. Our coffins and urns are lined with unbleached calico packed with a PVA medium. Free delivery within a 25 mile radius from Forres. Please contact me for a price for delivery beyond this and for personalisation. You are also very welcome to collect your coffin, urn or shroud in person.
