Our Mercedes fleet, finished in our signature dark green, addresses a number of objectives we had set ourselves:
With a wide range of coffin styles now available, a correspondingly wide variety of transport options can also be provided. Whilst our traditional motor hearse has been designed to complement any style of funeral, clients can choose from many other types of vehicle, either to reflect aspects of the deceased's life or to further complement the style of funeral.
Further options can also be created from transport actually owned by the deceased, their relatives or friends. We have much experience of preparing clients' own vehicles for use, (a tractor & trailer, for example) and we will gladly advise you and help you explore all available options.
Shown below are links to illustrate the variety of transport providers.
(Please note that there may be practical considerations to be thought about before choosing some of these forms of transport. We will advise you accordingly).
Alpha 4x4 Funerals offer you the unique opportunity of using the first Land Rover Hearse and Limousine Service in Great Britain, run by dedicated Land Rover enthusiasts.
Volkswagen Funerals offer a unique VW 'Type 26' Bay window coach built hearse, the only one of it's kind offered for hire. Simply known as 'the camper van hearse' the 1972 hearse has been sympathetically restored and painted white to match their fleet of stretched VW Beetle limousines and Volkswagen buses (campers).
Motorcycle Funerals Limited is the first ever UK company to manufacture and supply motorcycle hearses. They provide professional specification hearses that can perform dignified Motorcycle Funerals in all weather conditions. Their professional riders cover the whole of Great Britain.
Vintage Lorry Funerals can provide a fully restored 1950 Leyland Beaver flat bed lorry.
As the most commonly seen form of alternative funerary transport nowadays, horse-drawn hearses are widely available. Use of this form of transport is somewhat restricted by the geography of our locality, particularly with the hills, but we will be more than willing to advise you accordingly and help you to achieve your aim if at all possible.
