Our funeral vehicles are of the utmost importance to our business and reflect our high standards of service in providing the best for our families; we have therefore invested in and continue to maintain the Binz Mercedes hearse and limousines.
In 2015 we purchased a classic Rolls Royce Silver Cloud hearse which, together with our Phantom VI and Daimler DS420 limousines, provides an alternative to our modern Binz hearse and limousines.
We pride ourselves on our immaculate cars and prior to each funeral service the cars are fully cleaned. Each vehicle is provided with a chauffeur who will tend to your requirements in a dignified and professional manner.
The Binz Mercedes hearse and limousines are based on the E class model and coach built to the Elegance specification.
The hearse is an award winning design. In addition to the normal side glass panels it has a unique large glass panel roof which allows more light through to display the coffin and floral tributes.
Our matching limousines will accommodate up to 7 passengers and our Mercedes saloon cars will accommodate up to 4 passengers.
Whilst maintaining the Mercedes fleet, we are also able to offer a selection of classic cars. These classic Rolls Royce vehicles are an alternative to the modern Binz hearse and limousines.
The Daimler DS420 limousine was once the main funeral car of choice in the UK, only a few remain in service today. Our limousine is finished in royal claret over black. Together with our Rolls Royce hearse and limousine it makes up a truly prestige fleet of cars.
Horse drawn hearse
We are able to offer either a black or white Victorian horse drawn hearse and following mourners coaches. The hearse is traditionally pulled by a pair of black Fresian horses or a pair of greys. Teams of four or six horses are also available.
The funeral cortege
The funeral cortege traditionally will leave from the family home and it is custom for the funeral director to walk in respect for a short distance from the house. The route to the place of service is normally selected by ourselves. However, if you wish the cortege to take a particular route we will be pleased to carry out your wish.
When we are called to convey a loved one from home, hospital or a nursing home into our care we use our private ambulance or, if preferred, one of our specially adapted estate cars.
Funeral car hire
If the funeral arrangements of your loved one are being carried out by another funeral director, our classic cars are available for hire to you through your funeral director.
