I thought that all funerals required a coffin
Nope. You can stick the dear departed in the ground in a duvet cover or
a couple of bin bags if you want. I think it's OK to bury them naked,
too. Crematoriums generally want a coffin for handling purposes, but
cardboard is fine, as is anything which meets the required dimensions
and doesn't leak bits out. If the body has already been dismantled,
perhaps for medical teaching, you can fit it in quite a small box.
