Horse Drawn Funerals
With over 30 years of carriage driving experience, we are dedicated to providing and maintaining the very highest standards and traditional values.
We can offer black or white horses together with a black or white hearse.
Our purpose built, handmade hearse has been manufactured and maintained to the highest standards using only the best materials available.
The hearse has additional access from the front to facilitate easy arrangement of floral tributes and has ample space to accept most sizes of casket.
Funeral director's signs may be displayed in the hearse on the day of the funeral if requested.
Our perfectly matched pair of pure bred Dutch Friesian stallions, which have been chosen for their exceptionally placid nature and majestic appearance complete the service. Originally trained in Ireland, they have worked together for over five years in the funeral service profession.
Our collared harness has been made using the very best English patent leather and manufactured to measure for us by professional craftsmen.
Our very experienced coachmen are immaculately liveried from head to toe in the traditional style. A choice of attire can be offered including cloak dress coats or tails, black or pinstriped morning trousers, ties or cravats, top hat and gloves.
If your preference is for a country style funeral, we can offer our dray with a single horse, with our coachmen dressed less formally, without top hat and black coat but with flat cap, country style shirt, waistcoat and trousers.
We can also supply outriders mounted on black or white horses.
Before the day, we will have a ‘dry run’ of the route to ensure that our coachmen are familiar with the journey and to ensure the procession runs as smoothly as possible.
Bookings can be made by telephone and the completion of a booking form stating your colour requirements and payment preference. A deposit will be required within fourteen days of making your booking.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any queries.
