A Free Service for the Community
Based in Torquay on the English Riviera in South Devon, the funeral hearse conveyance services that I offer are completely free. I personally paid for all the vehicles and I also pay for their running costs and upkeep, together with all the equipment used. I understand that I am the only person in the United Kingdom who does this, and possibly the only person in the world.
In 2016 I started giving a free funeral conveyance service for motorcyclists using a Trike Hearse, and my services then grew year on year. The services I offer are completely free of charge. When families ask if they could give a donation to a charity in memory of their loved-one, I recommend a charitable community fundraising group called Torbay Bikers for Kids, and there is information about them at the bottom of this page.

Information for Funeral Homes
Each of the four conveyance services has an individual Method Statement and Risk Assessment document. These can be emailed to you on request. Please go to the Contact page and specify which ones you require.
If your Funeral Home needs to hire a black hearse with driver, please see our Carriage Masters page for more information.
Torbay Bikers for Kids are a group of bikers and motorcycle enthusiasts who raise funds to purchase items to help improve the lives and education of sick, disabled and disadvantaged children in Torbay and the surrounding area. They are all volunteers and are mostly pensioners. Since forming in October 2017, they have helped exactly 100 local children. Their Patron is 'Wee Jimmy Krankie'.
If you are kind enough to donate to Torbay Bikers for Kids your Funeral Director will be able to hold a collection for them on the day of the funeral and keep it open for a short while afterwards. You will receive a Certificate of Appreciation in memory of your loved-one as thanks.
