There are 3 things to consider when selecting a coffin size:

The length of the coffin must be greater than the height of the deceased, plus an allowance of at least 5 Cm and an extra allowance if shoes or a hat is to be worn.  

The coffin width must be sufficient to accommodate the shoulders and hips of the deceased. The elbows usually are close to the hips and may end up slightly wider, they will be close to the apex of the coffin and the shoulders are about 30 Cm higher. The chart below gives approximate dimensions for both measurements. 

The height of the coffin is often determined by the size of the Puku (stomach). It is advisable to measure this with the person lying down, as gravity will cause a certain amount of sagging once the muscles relax. Don’t forget that if someone is very ill, they will often lose weight before they pass. 

It is always worth remembering that if there is any doubt about whether the coffin may be a bit tight, it is always worth going to a larger size. There is never a problem if a coffin is too big, but it can be a catastrophe if it is too small.
