The Most Expensive Caskets Without Breaking the Bank

There is virtually no limit to how much you can spend on a casket.  Elizabeth Taylor's red velvet lined example cost $11,000 and she was still late to her own funeral.  Michael Jackson went one further by having his plated with gold for $25,000.  You could have an even more expensive casket if you wanted to, but the ones we have recommended on this page provide a touch of luxury without needing to have rock star status to afford them.  

Funeral homes and directors are obliged by law to allow you to buy your casket from anywhere you like and have it delivered to them.  That will save you a lot of money compared with buying direct from the funeral home.  It will also mean that you have a lot more choice.  Check out the rules here.

The caskets on this page range in price from approx $1499 to $3499 and can be delivered in the USA in between 1 - 3 days.  For some areas overnight delivery is available.
