Cars & Carriages

An important part of our service is the provision of the hearse, limousines and cars for the funeral. Or you may prefer a horse-drawn carriage or other mode of transport. The choice is yours.

These are charged for separately, to ensure that you will not be charged for something you do not need or want. The charge is fully inclusive, and covers the journey from the family’s pick-up address, to the funeral, and afterwards to your destination within ten running miles. Limousines will carry up to six mourners, and are driven and maintained to a high standard by a fully trained chauffeur.

Our traditional horse-drawn funerals, use a range of authentic Victorian hearses and mourning coaches. These are drawn by black Friesian horses (described in antique literature as “perfect blacks”) which can be supplied in pairs, or teams of four, six or more if required. All our horse-drawn vehicles are driven by professional coachmen in authentic Victorian dress.

If you wish, our own bearers will carry the deceased on their shoulders, both into and out of the church.
