Your loved one will be conveyed to the funeral service in a hearse. Many families choose to follow the hearse in one or more of our limousines, which comfortably accommodate six passengers. 

The funeral cortege will collect you and other family members from an address of your choice. You will be taken, in the limousines, to your chosen destination following the funeral service.

As a special alternative, we are able to provide a traditional horse-drawn hearse. Other appropriate modes of transport may be arranged on request, please see below some examples of alternative transport.

Austin's Fleet

We offer a number of beautifully maintained, traditional black hearses and limousines.

Horse-drawn funerals

Horse drawn hearses make a real impact. We can provide two or more black or white horses with a wide choice of different coloured plumes. The beautiful glass-sided hearses also come in a choice of black or white.

We offer a wide range of motorcycle hearses from the classic style Triumph through to the iconic Harley Davidson. Each vehicle has a pillion seat, a wreath rail and we provide an appropriately dressed professional rider to take your loved one on their final journey.

For a dignified funeral with a difference we offer a 1950 vintage lorry. The 21ft deck provides ample space to create a unique arrangement for your loved one whether it’s made from floral tributes or artefacts close to their heart.

VW funerals

For something completely different why not hire a white 1972 VW camper van hearse? The hearse can be decorated to reflect the personality and interests of your loved one and can also be accompanied by stretched Beetle limousines and a fleet of VW buses.
