About us

Giving grieving families the gift of time

CuddleCot and the CuddleBlanket, provide grieving families an opportunity to spend time with their loved ones without having to cool the whole room.

Our parent company designs and manufactures flexible mortuary solutions for the storage and cooling of the deceased.

We assist hospitals, funeral directors, hospices, governments, charities and families in the design and deployment of both temporary and permanent mortuary systems.
