Alternative Hearses

Transporting a coffin or casket is one of the more obvious practicalities of a funeral. The most common choice for our families is a traditional hearse, but more and more people are seeking an alternative means, something more individual, a more fitting tribute. Here at Cliff Bradley & Sons we strive to ensure that every aspect of your loved one’s funeral is personally tailored to them, and that includes their final journey. There are many options available, and our helpful and dedicated team is at hand to help you find transport that is both meaningful and individual, whether that be something quiet and conservative, or loud and flamboyant.

From lorries and off-road vehicles to camper vans, and even motorbikes with sidecars, we have sourced and provided all kinds of alternative hearses for our families. We have ongoing relationships with many hearse providers and will always try to source and accommodate your requests, however unique or unusual. There are literally hundreds of options available, and we will strive to ensure that your requirements are met for a unique and special commemoration.
