Special hearses

Our traditional vehicle to transport the coffin to the service location is a black Rover 75 hearse, but if something specific or unusual is required, then there are several different options which can be arranged for an additional charge.

 

Sometimes, a particular make of hearse is wanted, such as a Rolls-Royce, Daimler or Land Rover. Alternatively, the colour of the hearse may be the important factor so it may be possible to have a silver, white or even a bubble-gum pink hearse for the deceased's final journey.

Vintage motor hearses

There are a few vintage motor hearses available for hire similar to the 1933 Austin hearse as shown or for someone like a former HGV driver the funeral can be made more noticable by hiring a 1950 Leyland Beaver Lorry.

Motorcycle hearse

Available for hire for a "bikers" funeral locally is the Harley-Davidson trike hearse which pulls a trailer containing the coffin. Alternatively, hearses comprising of a motorcycle with an enclosed side-car for the coffin can be arranged.

Horse-drawn hearses

Always a sight that people stop to admire are horse-drawn hearse funerals. Real restored Victorian or reproduction hearses are available in black, white or silver with a matching pair or team (four) of horses from our reliable and experianced carriage masters.
