    According to Funeral-Caskets.com the standard width of a casket is 28 inches, the standard length is 84 inches and standard height is 23 inches - large enough to accommodate the average person who is 18 inches wide, 72 inches long, and 6 inches high - but for someone who is obese and weighing, perhaps, as much as 400 pounds or more, there simply may not be enough room in a standard-sized casket. "Most people are getting larger" says Bob Mayhew, retired owner of the Mayhew Funeral Home in Jackson, Ohio, which has been serving the Jackson community since 1924.
