Escorted Ashes Transportation
About This Service and Why I Do Not Charge
Cremated remains, or ashes as they are more widely referred to, should be treated with the greatest dignity and respect when being transported. Further, they should never leave the sight or control of the carrier.
I offer a service whereby the ashes of a loved one are transported on a purpose-built deck that rests on a catafalque draped in purple crushed velvet using either a white or a black specially adapted Range Rover. A light blue or a light pink crushed velvet drape can be used for babies or infants. Framed photographs can be displayed at the bottom of the catafalque, together with other tributes if required. The driver, who also acts as the carrier, wears traditional funeral attire.
Boxes and urns, made of any material, will be safely and securely held onto the deck using our specially-adapted adjustable bier pins. There will be four bier pins in total holding the box or urn. Only two are shown in each of the above photographs, to act as a visual aid to our secure holding system.
