For burial, any type of clothing and personal items can be placed in the coffin/casket. For cremation, the authorities are trying to tighten up on the use of own clothing to reduce emissions. In South Manchester, the crematoriums allow simple own clothing, avoiding heavy man made items such as shoes/boots, thick jackets and keeping personal effects to items made of soft materials.
We always endeavour to carry out a families wish or advise the best solution for a particular request.
