The Casket Industry originated in the United States in the 1800s. The local funeral director, known as the undertaker then, typically operated a furniture store and built caskets too. In the late 19th century, the industry developed as a separate entity, with manufacturers devoting their efforts to the manufacture and sale of coffins and caskets.
Manufacturers and their markets generally were locally based and small. This was the norm for the industry well into the 20th century. Products by the late 19th century included cloth-covered wood caskets, metal caskets (some with inner liners and “glass sealing” mechanisms) and hardwood caskets. Through the early 1950s there were more than 700 casket manufacturers in the United States. Total 1950 industry employment is estimated at 20,000.
