This article is about affordable memorial products for funerals which do not compromise on quality. This article is provided by Sydney Coffins. Sydney Coffins is a memorial product and funeral provider in Australia, specialising in unique and personalised coffins, caskets and funerals.
There are many memorial products on the market which people now have an option to choose from. It is common for people to purchase coffins and caskets from a third party and not from a funeral home.
Funerals can be an expensive occasion. Just like other items and services that need to be purchased in life, funerals is the same. However, due to the nature in dealing with ‘death’ it is a very delicate and sensitive item to purchase. As most people are overcome with emotion it is usually not seen as the time to shop around or to compare prices and seek value for money. Unfortunately, this often results in the high prices that people end up paying for a funeral.
A percentage of the Australian population do not need to question the price of a funeral because it has been pre-arranged or finances are readily available or because they just seek a cheap funeral. However, many Australians do not have a large amount of money available to pay for a funeral they desire.
So are there options? Yes. You do have a choice on what you want to be included in a funeral and more importantly how much you want to spend.
One area where you can save money is when you choose and buy funeral products such as a coffin. Most funeral homes will insist on buying products from them at a reduced rate. Which is understandable, however, take care that prices are not reduced only to be rolled over to an increase in another area such as a service. Ensure you ask for a price list including detailed prices for all products and services.
Sydney Coffins offers quality products at low prices. We also offer affordable funerals understanding the need for unique and beautiful.
Should l buy the Cheapest Coffin or Casket?
Cheap Coffins are a great way to save money for a funeral. A coffin or casket is a memorial item that is required for a funeral in Australia, as the deceased needs to the securely and safely transported to the final resting place so you will need to buy one.

All our coffins have been tested by an Australian approved testing body. You can see our NATA certificates for all our products here.
Our products are of consistent quality and our most affordable coffins have been carefully selected keeping in mind their aesthetic appeal. We hope we can provide you with a quality product at a price you can afford.
Difference between the cheapest coffin and an expensive one?
The difference between our cheapest coffin and our most expensive casket is the materials used in construction, the design, the style, the finish, the colour, and the interior. A more expensive product would have required more financial input for it’s creation and therefore it is reflected in its final price.
More expensive coffins are made from solid timber in both soft and hardwood and have a finish and a more complex design and these factors increase the price of the product. These products will also generally last longer due to their construction material.
The choice of a coffin or casket for anyone is a subjective decision. There is no right or wrong choice in choosing any memorial item for a funeral as a coffin or casket is required to safely contain and transport human body.
What options for cheap options do l have?
The cheapest coffins on the market are generally made from cardboard or reconstituted timber commonly known as MDF.
Cheap coffins are usually priced below $1,000. This price might still seem expensive. However they are products which are quite large, the material has to be bought, the construction of the product, they need to be stored, and also transporting these products requires a large vehicle so the final price is reflected including these factors.
