"The plan chosen was exactly what we wanted, and to be able to arrange everything in one place and at one time was a great benefit."

Upgrading a Coffin or Casket

Mears and Jackson International offer a wide range of coffins and caskets suitable for international transportation of the deceased. All coffins are offered with a removable zinc lining to create a hermetic (airtight) seal as required by IATA (International Air Transport Association) regulations. Our repatriation caskets have a built-in sealing system, so a zinc lining is not required.

Some of our most popular casket choices are shown below, please click on the images to reveal more detail. As you make your selection, the all-inclusive price at the top of the screen will be updated automatically. Please don't worry if you are not yet ready to make a final choice, we can finalise your decision later in the process.
