The English Made Coffins brand represents good design and quality craftsmanship.
Our logo has been developed by our in-house design team. In recent months we have minimised our logo in order to ensure it is legible and recognisable when incorporating it into online marketing

To ensure that every order arrives to you on time and to our exceptionally high standards of quality we deliver our coffins to you ourselves.This way we can limit the amount of packaging necessary, avoiding excessive packaging materials and large crates resulting in endless amounts of waste plastic. We also offer click & collect in person

Workwear amongst the EMC team usually consists of combat trousers of some description, with as many pockets as feasibly possible or a utility belt for Kyra as women's trousers tend to have ridiculously tiny pockets.
Along with steel toe caps all round #SafetyFirst
See Dan pictured spraying the gold dust finish in all of his safety gear.
All of the lacquers we use are waterbased to ensure a safer working environment and to keep our environmental impact to a minimum.

English Made Coffins was created to give families more of a choice. We want to offer families a special coffin, one that is both beautiful & well crafted.
English Made Coffins are here to help make a really bad day a little bit easier, helping families to choose a truly special resting place that reflects their loved one's individuality.
We care because we have been through the experience ourselves.
