What types of hearses can you use?
One of the elements in a funeral is the physical transportation of the coffin to the church and cemetery, or crematorium. This provides you and your family with the opportunity to travel together in a limousine, people carrier, or coach. This offers a further chance to personalise the funeral as you wish.
Almost 90% of families choose a traditional or classic hearse; however, there is a wide range of unique, classic, beautiful, and characterful forms of transport available for hire. Some are pictured below; and you can see others on www.hearseclub.co.uk/gallery/
You can also use our own blue-black Audi 6 estate car, your own estate car, or something else if you so wish.
We have even towed a keen sailor to the crematorium with his coffin strapped into a sailing dingy, with the flags flying!
You may want to start by following in a ‘cortege’ from your house; you may want to go via a special route, or – simply – meet us at the place where the service is taking place.
Pictured below are some other different types of transport that are available to you. And as ever, just call us with any ideas or options that you’d like to discuss:
