What happens next

Hearses & Passenger Vehicles

Transport options are one of the many ways that a loved one’s Funeral Service can be personalised. At Mortons, we have a variety of Funeral vehicles which range from traditional to the more unusual to convey the person who has passed away on their final journey.

Please see our range of Mortons owned and maintained vehicles below. However, if there’s a style of Hearse or Limousine that we don’t feature, please do let us know and we’ll make enquiries about sourcing it for you!

Once you have chosen your preferred means of transport, we can discuss the funeral route. Many people like to choose a route that passes by a place that meant a lot to the person who has passed away. This could be a favourite pub or restaurant, the local bowling club or park.

Other options

Horse drawn hearses

The splendour a horse drawn hearse can bring to a funeral cortege is of particular interest to many. With two, four or even six horses they are traditionally available in black with black horses, silver with grey horses and white with white horses.  However, horse drawn hearses can also be hired in a range of colours including pink and navy blue.  A choice of coloured plumes selected to reflect a particular theme or nationality completes the turnout.

Safety first

As you would expect we are required to observe the traffic laws. We will not compromise safety and consequently respectfully ask that if children are traveling in our limousines they must use an appropriate child seat where the law requires.  Currently, children must use such a seat unless they are 12 years old or have reached 135cms in height.  Where a child seat is required it should be provided and fitted by the child’s parent or guardian.


Looking after our environment

It is important to us that we respect our planet not only for ourselves but for the benefit of future generations.  Motor vehicle technology advances rapidly and so we remain committed to maintaining up to date vehicles which are fuel efficient, have better safety features and are reliable and kinder to the environment; what’s more, they look good too!
