Caskets Handcrafted in Canada

Master Craftsman Jeremy Burrill has been creating functional art for two decades, ranging from custom dining tables to electric guitars.  Spurred by the need for an environmentally friendly, economical and dignified option for families to honour their loved ones, Burrill is now creating simple yet refined pine-box caskets.

Handcrafted from local Eastern Canadian pine, his creations are elegantly laying down to rest those who prefer the simple things in life.  With ever growing costs and complications in the funeral process, fiddlehead casket company seeks to reduce stress, both financially and emotionally, offering an environmentally friendly pine casket.  Even the cherry dowels used for joinery are handmade, and a refined casket is born at the hands of Burrill.

The fiddlehead classic casket

Since 2016 we have made simple, but refined pine caskets available to people in the Maritime provinces of Canada. While no longer the flagship model, they are still available upon request.
