Unusual coffins on show at exhibition


A burial park in the Chilterns was the venue for an unusual recent trade show: The National Coffin Exhibition, subtitled "Handle With Care".

The exhibition showed the variety of burials now available - with wool shrouds and coffins made from natural fibres, recycled newspaper and cardboard all on show, as well as a coffin in the shape of a Rolls Royce.

Fran Hall, a former funeral director who now runs the Chiltern Woodlands burial park, gave a tour of some of the items on show.
