Ways You Can Customize Your Casket

If you’ve recently lost a loved one, or are preplanning your own funeral, you may want to take special care when choosing a casket. There are a wide variety of caskets available, in many different styles and materials. However, for a more personal and special touch, you might want to consider casket customization options available at the Mount Pleasant Group’s funeral centres in the GTA.

Types of caskets we offer

Whether you prefer cremation or burial in a Toronto area cemetery, a casket is a necessary component in a funeral. We offer many design options, from the simple to more ornate wooden caskets lined with luxurious fabric.

Customization options

A funeral is a deeply personal event. To this end, a number of casket interiors and exteriors can be customized with accessories that reflect the deceased’s personality.

  • Corner themes

Many caskets offer the option to replace the standard casket corner with a design that represents the person’s affiliations or hobbies. These can range from army insignia to religious symbols to markings representing their interests, such as fishing or sewing. Corners like this make wonderful keepsakes for the family.

  • Keepsake drawers

Some caskets include a drawer for placing personal items like books or journals, awards or medals of honour. There is also the possibility that the casket you choose has a record holder, a small drawer accessible from the outside that can hold personal notes or photos.

  • Cap panels

You can decorate the inside of most caskets as well. There are many options for casket inserts that are mounted on the inside of the lid. These can be used to display treasured photos of the deceased, custom embroidery or significant emblems.
