Funeral vehicles

Your choices

We have our own vehicle fleet, however all sorts of hearses and vehicles can be arranged for you along with flexible travel arrangements.

  • Our simplest service will transport the coffin from our premises to meet the family at the destination.
  • The hearse can meet the family at home so that the funeral party can follow behind in their own vehicles.
  • The hearse and limousines can both meet the family at home and they can leave together.
  • The limousines can collect the family and the hearse can go direct to the destination.

The choice is up to you. Your funeral director will walk you through all the available options before you make a decision.

Jaguar fleet

Selected to provide comfort and style, our Jaguars ensure you arrive composed and prepared for the ceremony. All finished in a traditional, reserved shade of black the time-honoured standard for funeral transportation. A mixture of vehicles can be chosen to suit passenger numbers and your preferences.

We have two state of the art Jaguar hearses available to transport your loved ones in style.

Our two limousines can seat seven passengers each plus the driver. We can hire additional limousines if you need them, however we cannot guarantee they will match our fleet.

We also have two saloons in the fleet. If you do not need the space provided by a limousine or simply prefer the feel of the smaller vehicles, these may be a good choice.

Daimler hearse

Our classic Daimler DS420 hearse has been in service from new since 1990. We have meticulously taken care of this vehicle over the years to keep it in perfect condition, most recently the bodywork underwent a full restoration. Identical to the Daimler hearse used for Princess Diana’s funeral it is a popular choice and does not look out of place alongside our Jaguar limousines and saloons.

Horse drawn hearse

Another popular choice is to have a vintage horse drawn hearse. We have a long history of providing horse drawn hearses, with our own being widely used in the 1800s. It is now too fragile and is kept on display, but we have a close relationship with a firm who operates horse drawn hearses and can arrange one for you. You can choose between a black carriage with black horses or a white carriage with grey horses as well as having either two or four horses.

Alternative vehicles

We are able to arrange various types of alternative vehicle for use as a hearse. Some examples we have arranged for families previously are shown below. These vehicles are hired from specialist firms. If you have a specific request not shown, please discuss this with your funeral director and we’ll see what we can do.

Mercedes ambulance

As well as our ceremonial vehicles, we also operate a Mercedes estate ambulance to collect the deceased and transport them to our premises. Discreetly finished in black this vehicle is ideal for collection from a private residence or nursing home.

Floral tributes

Your main floral tribute will typically be laid on the coffin within your choice of hearse. Depending on the hearse, you can also choose to have some smaller flower arrangements or floral lettering placed alongside the coffin. All hearses can have flowers displayed on them as well. If you are expecting to receive a large number of floral tributes, an additional ‘floral hearse’ can be added to your package. You can find out more and explore what is available on our floral tributes page.
