The Batesville Difference
Batesville caskets represent a unique choice available to families in Australia. Different from traditional coffins, Batesville caskets are larger, more substantial vessels made from the finest materials with unique features to help memorialise the lives of loved ones.
For over one hundred years, Batesville has manufactured the finest caskets available anywhere in the world. Superior craftsmanship, the highest quality materials and constant innovation have become the hallmarks of the Batesville brand. Batesville has always taken immense pride in fulfilling the needs of funeral directors as they serve families in their hour of greatest need, and we never forget that each of our products play an important role in representing a precious life of a loved one.
Hardwood caskets include a variety of species: mahogany, maple, and poplar. These caskets are the choice of families who appreciate and cherish the qualities of natural wood. The warmth, beauty and personality it brings to fine furniture makes it ideally suitable for the construction of quality caskets.
Metal caskets include those made from bronze, copper, stainless steel and steel. These caskets are known for their unique finishes. Bronze and copper are among the most durable and beautiful of metals; both are naturally non-rusting. Stainless and carbon steel caskets come in a variety of grades, gauges, styles, and finishes.
Why Families Choose Caskets
Caskets are selected for a variety of reasons. Many families choose caskets because of long-standing family traditions. For some, caskets are appropriate due to a specific religious or ethnic background. Still other families simply want the very best for their loved-one and feel a casket is the right choice to honour the person they have lost.
