Which-to-choose

Transport for the funeral service

We have access to a fleet of vehicles to meet your needs. 

There is a range of funeral transport options available. The usual choice of vehicle is the motorised hearse, followed by a number of limousines of your choice to transport close friends and family of the deceased to and from the ceremony. 

However, other types of funeral transport are available including:

  • Traditional horse-drawn hearse
  • Motorcycle hearse
  • The 4×4 hearse

We will, of course, advise on availability, practicality and costs on a range of available funeral transport options. 

Choosing something more unusual can help make a funeral a fitting tribute to your loved one and the list above is not exhaustive of the range of options available. 

Please discuss your thoughts and ideas with us and we will do everything we can to help.

The cortege journey

The hearse and following vehicles are known as a ‘cortege.’  We will, of course, discuss at length where the cortege will travel to and from and if you would like the cortege to take a particular route. 

As the deceased’s final journey, you may wish the cortege to travel a special route to the ceremony in order to pass a point of significance to the deceased (such as a place of work or leisure).
