Greenfield Creations were honoured to supply the coffin for the filming of Hayley Cropper's
funeral on Coronation Street.
Greenfield had to submit three designs to and then wait months before knowing which programme it was for and why…and then keep a lid on it, so to speak. Though pleased to be approached, they weren't surprised the Coronation Street design team chose this type of coffin.
As Greenfield point out, 'People are as different in death as they are in life and a personalised coffin can pay such a fitting tribute to the one who has passed.' Just as Hayley's did!
Greenfield Creations have been manufacturing cardboard coffins since 1990.
