The Standard Ash Casket

Plain Caskets, Engraved or with a Plaque

We have standard caskets made in Oak or Mahogany. They are our most popular ash casket. We can sell them plain, with a laser engraved top on the oak casket or with an engraved plaque.

We laser engraved your wording directly into the oak. Using the laser, we can create fine text and very detailed images if required. Although we can laser mahogany, the lettering does not show up as well. Another option is to paint the casket white and then laser the top or add a white plaque.
