An interesting question on Weight distribution

Leslie asks: ” two persons carry a weight (a coffin in this case) one at each end.

Assuming the coffin is in itself of even weight and that the deceased is of a very heavy torso.

Is the carrier at the end of the head/torso carrying more weight than the one at the feet?”
