Baby & Infants Hearse
To enable bereaved parents to travel with their loved one to the place of interment

About This Unique Service and Why I Do Not Charge


There are several ways to convey a baby or infant to their place of interment, such as a horse drawn carriage. Whilst extremely worthy, the cost can be prohibitive and the bereaved parents are unable to travel with their loved one, who must make the journey without them. I know from personal experience that it would be so much better if parents were able to travel with their loved one on that final journey, and not have to follow behind in a vehicle. Numerous bereaved parents I have spoken with share my sentiments.

For this reason I established a baby & infant hearse service using two specially adapted Range Rovers so that parents can travel with their loved one to the place of interment. The casket rests on a catafalque, which is draped in either purple, pale blue or pale pink crushed velvet. Personal items such as a shawl, toys, photographs and flowers can be placed around it. The parents sit on the vehicle's rear seats which are just in front of where the casket rests. For smaller loved ones there is the option of having them rest between the parents on a specially constructed mini-deck. There is a choice of either a white or a black Range Rover, both of which have dark tinted windows to give the privacy needed.

This service has been designed to ensure that the final journey the bereaved parents share with their loved one leaves a dignified, lasting and positive memory for them.

I deem it an honour to convey a baby or infant to their place of interment on behalf of the parents, and for that reason I cannot accept payment in return for this service. Instead I ask that a charitable 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 140 children have been helped by donations.
