    I can only find 2 fonts that contain any of these characters (Coffin and
    Funeral Urn).

    Garava and Verajja

    I think monks in Thailand chant in Pali at funerals, which might be why
    these fonts include these 2 glyphs.

    Perhaps James Kass is working on these characters for Code2000.
