Each and everyone of us is unique, there is no other person like you on the planet, why send them off in a plain brown varnished box, that says nothing about the person. I will create a coffin with your help that will represent your loved one. I hand paint the coffin to a colour of your choice, then as I am painting it, we work together on the design. Whether your loved one liked dancing, singing, fishing, football, gardening, bingo, walking – the coffin will depict their personality.
Pictures of the commissions to date, can be found in the gallery below.
Reviews for Susan's personalised coffins
- Many thanks for working collaboratively with me and, I appreciated the quick turnaround.
We all loved the casket the Susan made for us and the service she offered from start to finish was really good.
Susan was so helpful in every aspect of organising Dad’s coffin. They made a very difficult time much easier to deal with. It was so much easier for everyone at the funeral service to see the coffin decorated as it was, especially for the grandchildren who had never been to a funeral before. Nothing was too much trouble and we could not recommend them enough.
We were so glad that we chose to have Mum’s coffin decorated by Sue, at Personalised Coffins.
The funeral service was so much more personal and everyone commented on how the coffin design reflected Mum’s personality and everything she loved. It is something that everyone should do, to be able to send their loved one on their final journey.
Helping to design my daughter’s coffin helped me with the grieving process. It represented her personality.
Sue provided the coffin at my mother’s recent funeral. What a difference it made to a very sad day – Mum would have loved it – off to a better place and decked out in her favourite flowers and wildlife. A better send off than any brown or black wooden coffin – no matter how expensive the wood might be. Thanks Sue.
Choosing a coffin was never something | ever imagined having to do. The thought of my sister in a wooden or cardboard brown box for any period of time would have upset me greatly. She was never meant for anything so dull as she was always the life and soul of any party. I contacted several companies to find either a gold or a glitter coffin to no avail and then | came across Sue Horwell who stated she personalised coffins and my sister rested in a gold with sparkly glitter coffin which she looked at home in.
No one likes to think about money at a time when you are choosing a coffin but it wasn’t any more expensive than a standard coffins. I was consulted about everything so really felt as though this was made for my sister.
I only wish that | had known the meaningful and very caring work of this professional lady, when my beautiful husband passed away 20 years ago. Jason was not only a graphic artist but a vintage aircraft enthusiast. I wanted his funeral to depict who he was. I wanted his friends and family to feel him within the congregation. He may have passed but this was his leaving party, a celebration of his life and all that he was, We had the music, which stirred the emotional memory of him within us but how lovely would it have been to have him brought into the church in a coffin that told of his story, his lifetime. I know that Sue would have painted and crafted his coffin in a way that portrayed and achieved this. It would be his perfect entrance. Here comes our Jason wrapped in the very essence of his life.
A resting place for Rum. I am sure most people dread the thought of losing their dear pets but deciding what to do with them is yet another hard emotion to deal with. So, after losing our beloved springer spaniel Rummage, my son and I decided that he would like a very
“special’ box ta keep his ashes in. With the utmost respect and great thoughtfulness, Sue created the perfect box, sky blue and hand painted with beautiful trees, inside the perfect tennis ball lining, more than apt for a Springer who spent his days chasing a ball in the woodland! The resting box for Rum will always be treasured and am very grateful to Sue who put so much care and love into it. RIP Rummage.
