If you want to provide a memorable farewell, Waters and Sons Funeral Directors can provide a selection of elegant carriages pulled by regal black Friesian horses and accompanied by experienced grooms and coachmen.
This traditional and symbolic part of the final journey is now becoming a popular alternative with bereaved families.
Whether you require a traditional black hearse and a pair of horses or a team of four with matching coaches for mourners, Waters and Sons can provide everything you need to ensure that final farewell is a lasting tribute to your loved one.
All of our horses are always beautifully turned out in English patent leather harnesses along with traditional full collars and our coachmen are professional carriage drivers with many years of experience in funerals.
The modesty cloths that drape from the horses can be personalised, as well as the coloured plumes to match the requirements of the funeral theme or family’s tastes. It is also possible to have a white hearse and mourning carriages if you would prefer.
Vintage Lorry Funerals
For a truly unique final tribute Waters and Sons Funeral Directors can provide a vintage lorry to carry the coffin. If you want to personalise the funeral of a loved one you can use the 21 foot deck of a vintage lorry to create a stunning display with your floral tributes around the coffin.
You can create a multi-tiered display to make sure all of your floral tributes are displayed around the coffin.
Waters and Sons Funerals Directors offer a unique and dignified final journey for your loved one, in a unique and personal way.
Motorcycle funerals are another tradition – A dignified solution to what many lovers of motorcycling have seen as a problem in the past.
We can provide Motorcycle hearses to serve both religious and non-religious communities. Each motorcycle hearse includes flower rails and pillion seats and are large enough to transport all coffin sizes including an American Casket.
Other funeral options are available on consultation with our arrangers.
