How to Choose the Right Casket for Your Loved One, Harrison, Ohio

Planning a funeral service while mourning a lost loved one is not easy. At Minges Funeral Home in Harrison, OH, their compassionate staff understands this, and will work tirelessly to craft a dignified service that won’t break the bank. They’ll even help you pick out the right casket for your dearly departed. Here, they’ve compiled a quick guide to help you navigate your search.

Which Casket Is Right for Your Loved One?

1. Wood Caskets

casketDue to their warm, rich grain and classic look, wooden caskets have been the traditional burial choice for years. Wood caskets are often used for ceremonial viewings in addition to burials.

2. Metal Caskets

Metal caskets are known for their durability and are available in steel, stainless steel, and bronze. If you’re looking for an economical yet strong alternative to wood, a metal coffin may be the right choice for you.

3. Cremation Caskets

Even if cremation is part of your funeral arrangements, you may desire a casket. A cremation casket can be used for a viewing or a special memorial service before the cremation.

4. Rental Caskets

You may not be able to spend a lot of money on a casket, especially if the funeral arrangements include a cremation instead of a burial. Luckily, you can still hold a viewing and funeral service honoring your loved one by renting a solid oak casket.

If you need guidance before selecting the right casket, give the staff at Minges Funeral Home a call at (513) 367-4544. Their compassionate staff will help you navigate the process with ease. They also offer grief counseling services to aid you in the mourning stages. You can find more information about the caskets they offer on their website, or like the funeral home on Facebook for more professional insight.
