Award Winning Products & Service

Musgrove Willows has won many awards since the first willow coffin left our workshop around a dozen years ago.

Thanks to the amazing feedback from customers, our skills and expertise have been recognised by numerous organisations. It isn’t just the quality of our coffins which is noteworthy. The knowledge needed to grow the finest willow, the workmanship of our weavers and the outstanding level of customer service have all been recognised.
