What is a funeral casket, is it needed and what’s available?
In Toronto, you have the option to buy or rent a casket or build your own as long as it is safe and meets the requirements of the cemetery or crematorium. Funeral caskets can be simple or fancy in appearance which results in the variations in price. Prices may range from hundreds to thousands. They are made of a variety of materials. Either made of wood or metal. Cremation caskets must be made of materials that can combust (burn). Therefore, when making arrangements, there are many important things to consider. Decisions are based on costs and available options. Therefore, keep in mind that a funeral director may not refuse to serve you or charge you extra if you decide to purchase a casket from Haven Casket.
For burial in a grave: What is a vault, is it required?
You have the option of purchasing a vault or an outer container to protect the casket. This enclosed container is placed in the ground along with the casket. It can be made of concrete or fiberglass. Price may range from hundreds to thousands. Generally, the vault is not mandatory unless required by the medical officer of health. The vault is typically for extra protection for the wood casket from ground cave-in and external damages. You can consider metal caskets for that extra protection in place of wood caskets. Most cemeteries in Toronto do not require you to purchase a vault along with the casket.

What is the Difference Between Wood Caskets vs Metal Caskets?
Funeral caskets can be made in wood or metal. The most traditionally popular material that is a funeral casket is made of is in wood. Wood caskets are available in solid hardwood. The exterior can be finished with a matte or high-gloss coating. Wood caskets are in many styles and may vary from square-cornered, round-cornered or interchangeable corner shapes. Different selection of wood species are available that results in the variation in pricing for wood funeral caskets. At Haven Casket, each wood casket is hand-crafted and assembled by our craftsmen. As a result, each funeral wood casket will be unique even with the same style. We carry veneer wood caskets to further lower the cost of a wood caskets. A veneer wood casket is made of a thin layer of select wood type (e.g. cherry) constructed onto solid wood to give an outer appearance of that select hardwood casket. Families who are on a budget will still be able to purchase a wood casket that looks exactly like a hardwood casket. With our latest technology, our veneer caskets resemble 98.9% of a hardwood casket while saving you a substantial amount of money if you decide on our veneer funeral casket over a hardwood casket.
People often believe that metal caskets are more expensive than wood caskets. However, this is the opposite case; metal caskets are more affordable. Available from copper, bronze, stainless steel or steel metal and manufactured in a wide selection of corner styles and colours. Cost varies within the metal casket family due to thickness of the casket. Metal thickness is available in 20 gauge, 18 gauge and 16 gauge. In Canada, 18 gauge is thicker than 20 gauge and therefore will cost more than the 20 gauge metal casket. Of course leaving copper, bronze and stainless steel caskets on the high-end of pricing in the metal casket family. The advantages of the funeral caskets in metal are the numerous corner designs available and the colour selections are endless when compared with wood selections.
