The Empire Collection was originally developed to fill the need for funeral directors and families across America. National statistics confirm that the general population has steadily become overweight. Knowing these facts, Covington decided to develop a new line of caskets that accommodates the increasing size of Americans. We understand that everybody is not their ideal weight and size. In their time of need, families still want to give their loved ones the dignity they deserve. Covington has made monumental strides to assure that funeral directors are able to serve their customers when this need arises.
