DEAL KLAXON - cardboard coffin with lining for £99
Thanks to avid Bitterwallet reader Bill for tipping us off to this flaming great deal on HotUKDeals - a cardboard coffin with free lining and optional bodybag from the Coffin Company - for just £99.
It's an entirely sensible alternative - not just for the environmental aspect but for the frugal implications - and according to the website:
"They are easily paintable (we are more than happy to do this for you or, if you prefer you can do it yourself).
It is also possible to provide a drape to cover the coffin."
Excellent. As long as your loved one doesn't drop out the bottom if the base gets damp, then we'll have one. This deal is getting plenty of heat of HotUKDeals, so make sure you order yours before [insert cremation-related pun here].
