Add a classic touch with a horse drawn carriage

Our funeral directors in Sutton Coldfield pride themselves on offering a comprehensive service for anybody who needs help arranging a funeral. Alongside basic funeral packages, we can also offer a number of additional extras which will allow you to bid farewell to your loved one in style. If you want a classic and traditional touch, we can offer horse drawn carriages to be used in the ceremony. These carriages are traditional and enduringly popular options when it comes to a funeral. They offer a memorable way to send the deceased person on their final journey.

Our Victorian patent hearse is completely original, built by John Marston Carriage Works, and is perhaps one of the most stunning carriages you will ever see. Even the funeral harness has been replicated to the exact standards required. Our hearses are drawn by all-black pure Friesians, quintessential carriage horses that are amongst the finest and most revered breeds in the country. The horses will be plumed with black ostrich feathers, according to tradition, and can be adorned with velvet drapes in a colour of your choice. In addition, we can provide horse drawn mourning coaches, capable of seating up to four individual mourners. We have invested in authentic Victorian dress, which means that the staff handling the funeral will be in full and proper attire to complete the effect.

When you choose us for arranging funerals in Sutton Coldfield, you can be assured that we will do all we can to make sure you are completely satisfied with the arrangements. Whether you want a traditional or modern funeral, we can provide for your needs.
