The hearse is the vehicle that carries the coffin to the crematorium or cemetery. Mourners are not able to travel in the hearse. The use of a standard hearse is included in each of our fixed price funerals.
Most clients opt for a standard hearse but other choices are available including a Rolls Royce hearse, a horse-drawn carriage or even a motorcycle hearse. A supplement is payable for these options.
To carry mourners to and from the funeral, we offer a range of limousines, each able to accommodate up to six people. You may request as many limousines as you wish depending on the size of your funeral party. One limousine is included in the price of our SIMPLE PLUS fixed price funeral.
"Cortege" is name for the procession of funeral vehicles, typically headed by the hearse. You can opt for a direct route from the mortuary or our Chapel of Rest to the crematorium or cemetery or you may arrange to travel via a nominated address, perhaps a relative's house that forms a convenient meeting point for mourners to congregate.
