Burial shroud and board, also known as a “trundle coffin”

trundle coffin burial shroud

A trundle is the ultimate in dignified and elegant green burial.

A burial shroud and a body board make what’s known as a trundle coffin. The platform as seen here is meant for transport and burial of the shrouded body. The shroud can be as simple as a cotton sheet, and our trundle has a 5″ edge to secure the body. The trundle is lowered into a grave as with a coffin, usually by rope.
