Today I’m in Norfolk delivering a Koffin to a customer – (yes they are not yet really for sale however) a spare prototype from the exhibition that Jonothan, a army veteran “with 2 years left” has given me some great advice and insights into him trying to get cremated his own way- some if it is almost laughable. £600 quid for a 6inch plaque and Im worried about charging 400 for a koffin! Here to meet his crem person with Koffin to convince.
The design issue I came across yesterday on my way up here meeting with ‘Respect Direct Funerals’ In terms of the height of the Koffin – which we have reduced in the next revision, is still rather high and when the body is buried (only 25% of people are in the UK, after 6 weeks the weight of the soil on the coffin/Koffin lid collapses the lid of the coffin and if theres a lot of space between coffin and body then the earth has to be refilled – potholes in the cemetery? Why didn’t i think of this? Why did nobody inform me along the way – I had lots of advice from woodland burials but clearly didn’t get enough good flatland cemetary advice….time to revise again? Yep lovely thoughts and it’s still before 10am.
