Our funerals are carried out in traditional style with Black Hearse and Limousine. However, we can offer Silver Hearse and Limousine which is proving to be a very popular option. Other alternatives are Horse Drawn Carriages or Motor Cycle Hearse.
There are other bespoke options available.

We are able to place an announcement in a local or national newspaper on your behalf to inform family and friends of the details of the Funeral service. We are more than happy to help you draft such a notice.

Dove Release

A white dove release offers a soothing touch in a time of sadness and sorrow.
We are offering a dove release with all funerals at no extra cost. This is one of our most popular additions.

Ladies In White

As well as our traditional all Black outfits we also offer a service which we call ‘Ladies in White’.
