Horse and carriage funerals are amongst the most traditional styles you can opt for. They are a beautifully elegant send off for you or your loved one.
Carriages are a great Victorian tradition that dates back to the mid 1800s. At Darren W Faragher Funeral Directors we have an authentic John Marston carriage hearse from the 19th century. Although motor vehicles dominate the funeral business these days, it doesn’t stop many people having an elegant horse drawn carriage service. We are proud to offer both options to give people the ability to select the perfect option for them.
We are pleased to offer carriage hearses with teams of beautiful horses. We have many different styles and customisation options available to make your funeral service for your loved one or you special. When you choose a traditional horse drawn carriage the horses will be plumed with black ostrich feathers and can also be covered in velvet in your choice of colour. As well as the hearse we can provide mourning coaches with space for 4.
You can match the carriage and the horse’s drapes to any colour scheme. This can really make the service feel and look like a perfect send off for your loved one. As highly professional funeral directors we have tried to really pay respects to the old Victorian tradition. We use very rare, authentic hearses and even go as far as having genuine detailed 19th century horse reins. The horses we use are all black Friesians; these are simply beautiful horses and astonishingly magnificent.
We are proud of the reputation we have built as a family-run, dedicated and a long standing funeral provider. We specialise in serving Birmingham, delivering services with true Victorian class and elegance that will leave your loved one with an amazing send off that will be unforgettable for years to come.
