Casket of choice

The casket caused quite a few raised eyebrows yesterday morning during the funeral of 71-year-old former University Drive, Cave Hill, St Michael resident, Evelyn Pernilla Cobham.
Made of plaited rattan, it was in the shape of a large basket – a novelty for Barbados.
“It’s called a Moses basket,” son Alfred Cobham Jr told the DAILY NATION during the service at Coral Ridge Memorial Gardens, Christ Church.
“That’s what she wanted for her funeral. She lived in England for some time and she would have seen caskets like these there.”
