The Difference Between Coffins & Caskets

The choice of coffin is a very personal one. It represents the wishes and personality of the deceased and will be looked upon by all who attend.  K.M.Smith’s Coffins & Caskets, designed and manufactured in Queensland, offer a range of choices to suit everyone’s tastes and budgets.

We welcome you to look at the range below and to  see what else is possible with the Expression range of coffins.
Note: please allow 5 days delivery for Expression coffins.

Coffins are narrow at the feet, wide at the shoulders where Caskets are rectangular.

Floral Arrangements

To some, flowers are another way to remember or convey the personality and style of their loved one. Many people have their favourites, our experienced florists cater to this with a range of choices and we are also happy to personalise floral arrangements to meet your wishes. The following is an indicative sample of arrangements. Keep in mind, particular flowers can be seasonal and may be subject to availability.

Bespoke arrangements are a speciality of Life Floral Tributes…let us know if there is something special we can do for you.

Life Memories Print & Visual Production

Working closely with your funeral Arranger, our dedicated production team specialise in producing ‘Life Memories’ for you
in the form of printed items, visual tributes and music selections to add that personal touch to the funeral service and become mementos
for family and friends to keep and treasure long after the funeral is over.

…And let’s not forget the Life Memories section for their wonderful design and print service of the service booklets and thank-you cards.  Well done team.

Dorothy N, Victoria Point

Our family was very happy with services from K.M. Smith. Special message of thanks to Life Memories helping make the process of submitting and organising photos so much easier.

Sheryl P., Drewvale

Our Life Memories team can design something personalised for you based on your choice of print style and size.
We work with the photos and content you supply (once you’ve met with your celebrant/clergy) and notes from
your discussions at the Arrangement about your loved one’s special interests or likes.
A proof copy is always emailed to you for approval and importantly,
to confirm that all details featured are correct and approval prior to printing.

The quantity printed is always your choice and reprints are also available after the funeral.

Memoriam Books

Our unique Memoriam Books, custom made in Brisbane are all priced at $90. Each book opens to a memorial page that records the details of the funeral. More importantly, subsequent pages allow everyone who attends the service to leave a message or signature of acknowledgment for the family.

We also offer our K.M.Smith White Vinyl Memorial book, priced at $25.
