The Royal New Zealand Infantry Regiment Expression Coffin commemorates the services provided by New Zealand military personnel. It features the RNZIR Tac Sign along with the cap badge and polished bayonets.
The regiment was formed on 9 January 1947 as the New Zealand Regiment with a single infantry battalion as part of the newly created infantry corps. Today, the Royal New Zealand Infantry Regiment is the parent administrative regiment of regular and reserve infantry battalions in the New Zealand Army. It is the only regular infantry regiment of the New Zealand Defence Force.
This picture coffin is beautifully handmade by our master craftsmen and wrapped in a photographic quality image, using the latest eco-friendly technology. The richness of colour and vibrance of this Expression Coffin is truly stunning.
Each of our Expression Coffins is available with a matching ashes urn.
Expression ashes urns are handcrafted to complement each coffin design, they are both beautiful art pieces and functional ashes containers. The felt covered urn base is simply removed for insertion of the ashes container inside. The external sizes of the urns are: W32cm x H15cm x D22cm. Contact us for more information.
We offset our use of natural materials by operating our Memorial Tree Program. When you purchase one of our coffins, a memorial tree will be planted on your behalf.
The tree will be planted by the Men of the Trees society, who are a non-profit, non-political group dedicated to the reforestation, maintenance and protection of trees in Australia. Your funeral director will supply you with a certificate explaining the Memorial Tree Program.
