What is Included?

If you are interested in a horse drawn funeral for your loved one, we are here to help. Our prices are clear and transparent, so you will know exactly what is included in the cost of the funeral. In addition to our standard burial or cremation funeral service, our service will include two or four horses, pulling a white, silver gold, or black hearse. The horses will be in traditional leather harnesses, with coloured ostrich plumes, and complementing curtains, with experienced coachmen and women also traditionally attired. The horse drawn funeral service includes a family limousine.

Our Carriages

A horse drawn hearse is an elegant and traditional carriage, specifically designed to carry your loved one to their final resting place. Our hearses are beautifully maintained and cared for by our professional team so that they are kept in top condition, whilst retaining their historic appearance.

Our Horses

Our horses are specifically trained for their role. It takes many years to train horses to drive a carriage to this standard. We have both white and black horses within our team, as these are the preferred choice for funerals. Our horses are trained so that they can work as a team of two or four horses, depending on what service you would like for your loved one’s funeral. Our horses are well-cared for and trained to an exceptionally high standard to always provide an exemplary funeral service.

Why Choose Horse-Drawn Funerals?

People choose to use a horse-drawn hearse for their loved one’s funeral for all manner of reasons. Maybe they loved horses, maybe they had always wanted one or enjoyed seeing them pass by, or maybe you find the traditional aspects of the horse drawn service comforting at this difficult time. Whatever you’re reasoning, the choice is yours. You can celebrate the life of your loved one in the way that you see fit, whether that is with a special full horse drawn service, or with a quiet, unobtrusive ceremony.
