Vehicles

We maintain a modern but traditional fleet of black limousines, which have been converted to a very high standard by skilled craftsmen in the UK. Our limousines are insured to carry up to a total of seven passengers, including any children. Clients must provide their own baby/booster seat and secure these in the vehicle, as our drivers are not trained in this respect. Children must be supervised at all times by their family and may not travel on the lap of another passenger. Smoking and the consumption of food and drink are not permitted.

Some families prefer a more nostalgic mode of transport, such as a glass hearse drawn by two or four Friesian horses or our recently restored Edwardian hand wheel bier, both of which are suitable for short distances. We can also supply a range of alternative vehicles including motorcycle, all wheeled drive hearses and flatbed pickup trucks. Additional time should be allowed to arrange and source more unusual requests.

You may wish the funeral to start in traditional cortege from your home address or for the hearse to proceed direct to the Church, Cemetery or Crematorium. Whatever your choice, we will arrange and advise on times.

How much does a funeral cost?

It is our policy to be open and informative about the funeral costs from the outset. Our costs are divided into three main groups.
