The Trappist Monks of New Melleray Abbey believe you and your loved ones deserve a more personal approach.
Most caskets are mass produced, sold to wholesalers, who then sell them to funeral homes.
Each of our caskets is made from wood specially selected and harvested from the trees in our 1400-acre forest. After the tree is cut down, a new one is planted in memory of the departed. The casket is then handcrafted by our team, who pray for the person’s soul throughout the process.
Each person is truly one-of-a-kind. They deserve a casket that is as unique as them.
Each casket is made in the prayerful environment of the monastery.
Handcrafted by Trappist monks and skilled artisans.
The monastery forest is a sustainable source of lumber.
We provide a unique alternative to generic, mass produced caskets.
