This service is then followed by the underground burial of the casketed remain in a cemetery of your choice.

Casket Options

Depending on the type, style & material of the casket, the price can range from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand. At Kearney’s we have a wide variety of caskets. Click on a casket type below to expand its varieties:

CasketHand crafted like fine furniture, each wooden casket has it’s own unique graining pattern. The natural warmth and beauty of wood is available in a variety of types and species. The interior material of a wood casket is typically either velvet or crepe.

The classification “hardwood” simply means that the wood comes from a leaf-bearing tree. “Softwood” comes from the needle or cone-bearing trees. Therefore, designation as a hardwood is not determined solely by the consistency or surface hardness of the wood itself, but the species of the tree from which it came. Cost can vary depending on whether the sides of the casket are constructed from solid wood or a veneering process has been utilized.

An economical choice for families, cloth covered are modestly priced as a result of the construction methods and materials used in their manufacturing process.

Builders do not have to concern themselves with precise joinery or solid wood products because the exterior is wrapped in a fabric cloth covering. The choice of modest quality materials is further used in interior fabric, bedding and pillow treatments in an effort to further reduce the cost.

Casket

The majority of metal caskets available on the market today are known as “protective” caskets. This terminology reflects that they are manufactured with a one-piece rubber gasket that runs around the inner lid of the casket.

Once closed, a locking mechanism draws the lids onto the base and the gasket forms a seal. This protective seal protects the deceased from the entrance of air and other gravesite elements.

Many higher quality metal caskets utilize a sophisticated magnesium rust inhibitor process. Metal caskets are commonly manufactured in 20, 18 and 16 gauge metals. Interiors are tastefully coordinated in a variety of materials form crepe to velvet allowing for a range of pricing to meet a wide variety of budget concerns.

The discovery of Chromium in the mountains of Russia in the late 1700’s led to the development of the alloy we now know as Stainless Steel. Stainless Steel is a rust resistant material and is available today in the manufacturing process of high quality stainless steel caskets.

Most stainless steel caskets features high quality velvet interiors and beautiful paint and brushed finishes.

Copper Caskets

Semi-Precious metal caskets are largely manufactured out of elements such as Solid Copper and Solid Bronze ranging form 32 oz to 48 oz grades. These caskets represent the finest of tributes available and are meticulous in their finish, design and quality interiors.

Contact us for information on semi-precious metal or copper caskets.


Families are increasingly requesting to rent a casket. To facilitate this request we offer a casket designed to allow for this service. The casket is a specially crafted unit that facilitates an inner simple container to hold the body. The casket itself acts as a “shell” around this container making it suitable for public visitation and viewing.

After the funeral service, the funeral director removes the inner container from the outer casket shell. The inner container holding the body is then transported to the place of final disposition, usually a crematorium.

The outer casket is reused for a number of services. Eventually the casket reaches a point of wear and it is destroyed. Because its usage is limited, the rental casket is replaced after a relatively small number of uses. However, due to the reusable nature of these units they can be also appreciated by families with environmental concerns.

For more information on casket rentals please contact us.

We are pleased to offer a large selection of Traditional Caskets and Containers designed to meet the needs of immediate cremation and burial requests. All wooden caskets and containers are suitable for services involving cremation as a means of final disposition.

All of our caskets and containers have been selected by us to provide a range of products that meet both the need for quality and affordability that is reflected in the broad requirements of the families we serve.

If you are looking for a specific type of casket or manufacturer’s model please let us know and we will make every effort possible to accommodate your needs.
