Coffins and caskets are funerary boxes, used to hold the bodies of deceased persons. Although the words are generally regarded as synonymous, American English speakers may refer to a six-sided funerary box as a coffin, while a casket might denote a four-sided rectangular box. Depending on customs or individual wishes, coffins or caskets might be buried in the ground, placed in a burial vault, or cremated. There are also several styles, from the simple to the very ornate, and may be made of several materials, including various types of wood, steel, fiberglass, or recycled kraft paper. Custom coffins are also created, using non-traditional designs or materials. For direct cremation, a cardboard casket is sometimes used. Only sites that offer the online sale of coffins or caskets, with wide distribution, should be listed in this category.
