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.

I deem it an honour to convey a loved one's ashes on behalf of the family, and for that reason I cannot accept payment in return for this service. Instead I ask that a donation is made in the loved one's memory to Torbay Bikers for Kids who raise funds to help improve the lives and education of sick, disabled and disadvantaged children in Torbay and the surrounding area. So far some 134 children have been helped by donations.

There is a choice of either a white or a black specially-adapted Range Rover to transport the loved one's ashes
