Caskets and Coffins
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A CASKET AND A COFFIN
The shape of a coffin typically resembles the shape of a body and has six or eight sides. It is wider at the top for the shoulders and gradually decreases in width toward the opposite end where the feet are placed. A casket is typically a four-sided rectangular box and, when used for burying people, often contains a split-lid for viewing purposes.
