Emergency Hearse Cover & Second Hearse Hire

About This Service and Why I Do Not Charge

I can provide emergency hearse cover and second hearse hire, both with drivers in traditional funeral attire, for funeral homes in South Devon should the need arise.

The hearse is a black Ford Cardinal coach-built by Coleman Milne that has only travelled 57,000 miles from new. It has a raised walnut deck to give the coffin prominence, together with two bearer seats and cover boards for maximum floral tributes. It can accommodate a coffin or casket of up to 8 ft 6 ins x 2 ft 10ins. It does not have any business signage.

Like my specialist & alternative hearse services, I do not require payment for this service. I only ask that a donation is made to a local children's charity of my choice, but as the funeral home is a business I will recommend the minimum amount to donate to them.

The minimum donation to the charity will be £130.00 allowing up to 4 hours & 50 miles for the hearse with a driver on a round trip basis, to and from my Torquay base. Additional time & mileage to be added at £5.00 per 15 minutes & £1.00 per mile. The donation is to be made 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 140 children have been helped by donations.
