What is the difference between a coffin and a casket?

Made from particle board or solid timber, a coffin has a more traditional shape that tapers at the head and feet and generally has four or six individual handles. The lid is separate and is secured with four or six screws.

Rectangular-shaped caskets are made from solid timber or metal and have the same height and width at the head and the feet. A casket lid is attached with hinges at one side. Caskets may have individual or swing bar handles.
