The casket panel, used for traditional ground burial, serves as the container in which the deceased is placed. It can be crafted from wood, metal, or aluminum. Within the casket panel, we refer to the interior as the head or cap panel insert. Typically, this insert is made of cloth material, commonly found in white or beige. It is available in both half and full-size options.

The plain head panel insert is commonly found within the casket. However, many families choose to personalize it by adding embroidery, a landscape design, or a photo of their loved one. This customization adds color and personalization to the inner part of the casket lid. If desired, the plain insert can be easily removed by either the funeral director or a family member, and replaced with a custom-made panel insert featuring colorful artwork.

Before ordering a custom panel insert, it is crucial to provide accurate dimensions to ensure a perfect fit when replacing the insert. It is recommended to seek assistance from the funeral home or casket manufacturer if you are unsure of how to take these measurements. Alternatively, you can watch our instructional video above, which provides guidance on how to measure for the inside of a casket panel for a custom insert.

The accompanying photo serves as an example of a custom panel insert placed within a casket. This addition adds color and further enhances the beauty of a loved one's final resting place.
