Musgrove Willows offer a wide range of willow ‘wicker’ coffins. Every aspect of willow coffin making takes place on our farm. Willow is grown, processed and then woven here to make the finest natural coffins.
Our willow is grown on the Somerset Levels and many of our coffins are named after the area in which the willow is grown.
Willow is renewable, sustainable and environmentally friendly. Once planted and established, willow beds can be harvested annually and last up to 60 years. Good land management enables us to produce the highest quality willow with minimal impact to wildlife.
Willow absorbs carbon as it grows. Traditional methods are used to process the willow - no fossil fuels are needed during the boiling process. Even willow offcuts are used to make charcoal.
Willow has been used for its strength, beauty and practicality throughout our homes and lives for centuries. In these environmentally aware times, wicker coffins are becoming a more environmentally sound option and as a more sustainable alternative to wood.
Our coffins are appropriate for burial, cremation, woodland and green burial sites and can be made to a specific size in 48 hours. A bespoke service is also available. Family and friends can also design a coffin. For ideas and inspiration, please visit our Gallery.
Family members are welcome to contact us to see how willow coffins are made here. With notice, family members can also actively participate in weaving the chosen willow coffin for a loved one.
