Your last expression is as important as your first impression…

Flat Pack Caskets

Our casket design is simple, yet elegant and is made of pine and ply. They come complete with lining and step by step, easy to read instructions. The caskets can be delivered Australia wide.

Our philosophy

Dying is never our favourite topic of discussion, even though its the most definite. Here, at Last Expressions it is our goal to give you the opportunity to add your character and essence to your final resting place. You can make it as fun or sombre, bright or calm as you want – whatever matches who you are and what you stand for in life. Why not involve your family and friends? This is an opportunity to open up that can of worms and share stories and feelings while you make your masterpiece.

The casket is a blank canvas – I hope you enjoy turning it into the essence of you.

What Our Customers Say

The Perfect Farewell 

Last week, sadly, I lost my brother in law and when we sat there listening to the Funeral home go on about Coffins, Jennie jumped into my head. One of the important factors for my sister and her family was that it had to be environmentally friendly as they are Vegetarian and Vegan. I called Jennie and her professionalism and help over the phone was outstanding at this time of sadness for us all. Jennie was able to send me some photos straight away and we talked about the need for this to be a fairly fast result. Jennie was able to deliver this to Dandenong for us yesterday and the end result was outstanding and reflected the families wishes exactly. I would highly recommend Jennie Barnes and Last Expressions as your number one choice when looking at your loved ones last resting place – Jennie – Thank you ♥️🧚‍♀️🦊🐈– Katriona

Happy Moments

“We had such a great time putting our casket together and decorating it.” – Lucas

Just Perfect

Thank you for giving my mum the opportunity to create a casket she has been asking for 💜💜
This means so much to her and knows when it comes time for her to rest in peace that her family won’t have to go through the pain and agony she did when farewelling her mum. Also she will take a message from us all with her xoxo– Cathryn
