Child coffins

Choose a beautiful child coffin handmade with love and care. All our willow coffins are available as handcrafted children’s caskets.

Our customisation service enables family ideas to be incorporated into the design of a child coffin. A bespoke service is also available.

Handmade child coffins

Each coffin is woven on our farm with willow grown in our Somerset fields. This enables us to maintain exceptionally high standards of quality and service. Many of our coffins are named after an area in which our willow is grown.

Please be aware that a willow coffin is often referred to as a wicker coffin.

High quality child coffins

In 2017, Musgrove Willows received accreditation from the Funeral Furnishing Manufacturers' Association that our coffins had passed rigorous testing for weight, strength and environmental impact. Every child coffin is appropriate for burial, cremation, woodland and green burial sites.

To customise a coffin, simply select a child coffin from the range below and follow the instructions to add colour and personal touches. The design can then be downloaded, printed or emailed.

All our coffins and caskets are lined with environmentally friendly materials. Only natural dyes are used to colour the willow and, when requested, the coffin lining. They are plastic free.

Personal touches & keepsakes

Family and friends are welcome to visit us to help weave a coffin for a loved one. If you would like to use this free service, please let you Funeral Director know or contact us directly. For those that live further afield, a live streaming service is available.

Keepsakes are also available and these can be personalised with individual messages. Families that come to help weave often make items from the willow. These can be attached to the coffin and then easily removed.

Child coffins can be made to a specific size and design in 48 hours. The process takes a little longer if the family is involved in the weaving.

The Children’s Funeral Fund for England can help to pay for the cost of a coffin or casket for those under 18. While it is not means-tested, the burial or cremation must take place in England. The fund can provide up to £300 towards burial or cremation fees, the coffin, shroud or casket for a child's funeral.

Baby Coffins

Handmade baby coffins also available. Choose from our Baby Nestling Cradle or Baby Nestling Crib.
