Mystery Object No. 37


Recommended Posts

A transit case maybe?

 

In the sense that it carries the plastic bag.

 

it seems small and may not be the size of the box, this could be misleading us.

 

The bag goes inside the box.

The box is well constructed using Oak with a brass plaque. My guess is that it is for transporting cremated remains back to England? A plastic bag and a laminated sign make me think this is a Post war item - about 1950/60?

Yes well deduced Robert correct on all counts.

 

It is a Casket, Cremation spec 1965. To be used in conjunction with Coffin, Cremation which differed from Coffin, Burial.

 

Both types of coffin had different specs for England & Wales compared with Scotland & N.Ireland.

 

Anybody know the differences?
