A hearse is the name that’s given to the large vehicle which carries a coffin or casket from the family or funeral home, to the funeral service and ultimately a cemetery or crematorium.
We can provide one of our own traditional chauffeur driven hearses to convey the person who has died and we’re always prepared to accommodate your specific requests. Sumitra Ambulance Service (www.localambulance.com) provides a caring and expert service, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Our fully trained Funeral Directors have a fleet of chauffeur driven limousines to transport family and friends to the funeral service safely and on time. After the funeral, our limousines will wait for you and return you to a local destination of your choice.
The cost of a hearse completely depends on what you want. All of our funerals include a motorised hearse, though any special requests such as a horse-drawn hearse will incur additional costs.
Our funerals are tailored to you and your loved one, so please ask your chosen Funeral Director for more information regarding funeral vehicle costs.
If you wish to make your loved one’s final journey even more personal, choosing a hearse or alternative mode of transport which celebrates their life can be a fitting tribute.
Whether it’s a fire engine, motorcycle, campervan or horse-drawn hearse, Dignity’s professional Funeral Directors will be on hand to ensure your unique arrangements are met for a special commemoration.
