People sometimes like to include elements that will add a special touch to the funeral service. These include horse-drawn hearses and releasing doves at the crematorium or at the grave.
We will do our best to arrange anything we can for you and your funeral director will be able to provide further information about these services or any other special requests you may have.
For those seeking a more traditional style of funeral, a horse-drawn hearse may be arranged.
Driven by experienced coachmen, this is the perfect choice for those who wish the service to reflect the dignity of a bygone age. The horses are presented to a high standard, complete with a leather harness, traditional collar and plumes.
Releasing white doves
The release of white doves at funerals and memorial services is an increasingly popular way of adding that special touch to a funeral ceremony.
The gesture helps to begin the grieving process of letting go and is sure to live on in the memories of all who attend the service. The trained white birds soar into the sky, usually circling a number of times in a group, before returning to their home lofts at distances up to several hundred miles away.
Motorcycle funerals honour and acknowledge the passion that motorcycle enthusiasts enjoyed in life and demonstrate respect for all bikers.
A motorcycle hearse is an entirely appropriate means of transport for those whose passion in life was motorcycles and is a dignified way of showing that your loved one had character, style, energy and individuality.
A motorcycle funeral is suitable for all bikers or ex-bikers and may encourage happy memories of youthful days, holidays or day trips that aid the mourning process.
For your convenience and comfort, additional limousines can be arranged should you wish. Our modern fleet of vehicles is regularly updated and specifically designed for use by the funeral profession.
