Keep it simple
You may have a preference for clean lines and a minimal aesthetic that allows for family and friends to write messages on. Or it may be that you’re choosing a casket with no plans for a visitation, and so the casket won’t be displayed during the funeral or at a service.
If cremation is taking place before a funeral service, you may also wish for a simpler casket. By law, when a body is cremated, it must be placed inside a rigid, combustible container, such as these ones.
