- Astral Industries
We work closely with the family at Astral Industries to provide you with great caskets at affordable prices. Every casket is made with 100% American Steel and Wood.
Please note, some options may not be available in short time periods due to manufacturing time.
A digital catalogue is posted below.
There are four types of metal caskets: Solid Bronze, Solid Copper, Stainless Steel, and Carbon Steel.They range in durability as well as price, with Bronze and Copper being the most durable, and therefore the most expensive. The type of metal, the casket shell design, and the interior fabric determine the price.
Hardwood caskets consist of many different types of wood made from a variety of different species. The price is determined by the specific type of wood, the casket shell design, and the fabric used to make the interior. Solid wood caskets are more expensive than vaneered wood caskets, with both providing a beautiful look and great protection.
The interior fabrics, of metal and wood caskets, are available in velvet, velour, crepe and satin. Using the head panels and carrying hardware, caskets can reflect different themes such as nature, hobbies, careers, and spirituality. Customizing of the head panel is always an option, and some of our offerings can be outfitted with totally different interiors to better match your loved one's story.

Green Burial Products
We offer the following products for use in Green Burials.
- Green Burial Caskets
- Shrouds and Carriers
- Biodegradable Urns
- Water Soluable Urns
- Plantable Urns
Caskets sutible for Green Burial are typically made in a whicker style from materials such as Seagrass, Willow Branches, and Bamboo. They are lined with standard cotton, and include handles on the side like standard metal caskets.
A shorud is a full cotton covering to cover the body before interment. For green burial, a shroud is the minimum you need, but a carrier may also be necessary to get to the grave.
Usually made of recycled paper or cardboard, these can also be made of hollowed out and dried gourds, natural unstained woods, and compressed dirt or sand.
Water Soluable differes from Biodegradable in two ways, construction and materials. While some are still made of recycled paper and cardboard, water soluable urns are designed to float for a portion of time before disolving completely and releasing the cremains inside. Other urns are made from Himalayan Rock Salt, when not being used as a standard urn, can be placed in water and will slowly dissolve over the course of a few hours to a few days depepnding on the size.
Plantable Urns are either filled with flower seeds, plant seeds, or even a tree sapling so when buried, beautiful plant life will grow from the urn.
