Willow Coffins

Cath and her 14yr old son Jim went to Great Yarmouth and were taught 'the ropes' of coffin making by master basket maker Terry Bensley in his workshop in the back garden.

These willow caskets are made from locally produced willow from the Somerset levels and are made to a high standard with love and care from all natural products. Before the introduction of man-made materials, baskets were used from cradle to grave.

Our coffins are made to suit the person, they are made in three days and require three days notice, though we will always try to fit in with your needs.

You can be sure of our promise to you that we will handle a difficult time with care and compassion for your loved one and that we will take the greatest care in making the willow casket for their final journey.


All our coffins are tailor-made so we need three days notice, although they can be made quicker in an emergency. We will deliver the finished casket to the customers desired location.

Please contact us for a quote for delivery. We deliver the coffins ourselves, but also use a courier service for delivery and can do next day delivery on arrangement, please call for details.

Please contact us to talk through your needs.
