Funeral practices vary throughout the United States. One of the differences is the full-couch casket and the half-couch casket.

Locally, in southern Indiana, most funerals have the half-couch viewing. This is where the head end of the casket opens for viewing leaving the bottom half covered.

In other parts of the country people prefer a full-couch viewing where the entire top of the casket is opened for a full body viewing. This is popular among bishops, priests and deacons of the Catholic Church as well as certain regions throughout the United States.

Abbey Caskets sells both full couch and half couch caskets in the Traditional and Monastic styles.
