The choice of transport is another way that you can help to create a unique commemoration to the deceased, and we’ll take the time to talk you through the various options available.
We’ve listed some of the transport possibilities here, and Bob and his team will use all their experience to arrange whichever option you decide to choose.
If you have a specific idea in mind already, or you don’t see an appropriate option listed here, please just let us know – we’ll be happy to organise transport that fits with your preference.
Traditional hearse and limousines
The modern motor hearse and matching limousines, all with consecutive private registration plates look very impressive on any cortege. Here at R J Burgess we can also provide your loved ones with many different modes of transport to carry them on their final journey.
Vintage motor hearse
A 1933 Austin Twenty vintage motor hearse in immaculate condition, with etched engravings on the glass work can be booked to provide a funeral that brings back long lost memories of yesteryear.
Horse Drawn Hearse
The Regal and Majestic Belgium black Friesian horses with ornate Victorian hearse is guaranteed to create a memorable sight at any funeral. Driven by a highly experienced coachman these horse drawn funerals will leave a lasting memory for anyone wishing to say farewell to someone who was very special in their life.
For anyone wishing to be a bit more daring the motorcycle funeral has got to come out tops. A number of different makes of motorcycles are available. The traditional British Triumph, Harley Davidson and Suzuki Hayabusa (it’s your personal choice). These have sidecars fitted to the side of the bike.
The vintage lorry funeral originally designed for former lorry drivers is now proving very popular with all kinds of people. The vintage lorry is designed in such a way that the coffin rests in the centre of all the floral tributes.
