About Crescent Casket Company

Crescent Casket Company is owned and operated in the New Orleans Area by Chris Shirer. We supply funeral homes and the families they serve with top quality, custom caskets.

Commitment to Service

Our Family has been in the Casket Business for over 150 years, spanning 7 generations! Over that time weve strived to suit the needs of our customers, and have come to understand what it means to bend over backwards to ensure timely service and a quality product. From our timeless original, the Tearose, to our Special Sized models designed to fit the historic tombs of New Orleans, we take pride in putting our name behind every casket we send out.

Crescent Casket is based in the Greater New Orleans Area, which means were only a phone call away, and same day service is available for most in-stock items.

We live in a special place. Whether you’re from The Treme, Uptown, Metairie, the Parish, across the Lake, or down the Bayou, we are all family. At Crescent Casket, it’s no different – We treat each loss as though it was our own, with dignity and respect. Crescent Casket is committed to service and appreciates your support of local businesses like ours!

Made to Order Caskets

Nearly every Crescent Casket can be customized to satisfy your customers needs and desires. We offer a wide selection of interchangeable hardware and panel inserts, and our locale and size of operation allow us to paint a casket any color and install any color or fabric interior your client desires. In addition, nearly every model can be turned into a full couch or reverse panel upon request.
