Elliott Funeral Chapel offers a wide variety of caskets. These caskets can be divided into two groups: those that are constructed from natural materials like hardwood, and those that are constructed from processed materials like steel, copper or bronze. Additionally, some of them are designed to resist the entrance of air and water. Some are not gasketed. We will be happy to answer any questions concerning this type of casket.
Bronze, a semi-precious material alloy, is the strongest and longest-lasting of any casket construction material. Bronze is resistant to corrosive elements, and makes an elegant, exquisite remembrance.
Copper, a precious metal, is known for its longevity, beauty and resistance to corrosion. Copper is one-third stronger than stainless steel, and its combination of strength and beauty helps memorialize a remarkable life.
Steel, known for its affordability and long-lasting performance, is one of the most popular of casket materials. From the highest quality 16-gauge to a minimum quality 20-gauge, thickness determines the general quality and price.
