The desire of many people to create a meaningful tribute whilst managing the ecological impact of a funeral has led to our creation of an entirely bespoke Green Funeral. Options include hand woven English Willow or Bamboo wicker casket and local greenfield burials in the heart of the Dales.
We also offer a locally produced wool coffin, produced here in Yorkshire using local wool. Our wool coffin was used for the funeral of the late Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Phillip.
Horse Drawn Hearse
Our hearses are drawn by matching pairs of well coached, elegant and trustworthy horses. We offer black or white horses in sets or teams of 4. The horses are immaculately turned out in English shiny leather harnesses with standard full collars. Our Coachmen are professional carriage operators with specialist experience in funerals and are pristinely attired in typical Victorian livery.
For centuries people have used signs to depict a message. The white dove is the icon of belief, fidelity, peace and love.
At a funeral service or memorial service, a dove launch can be a serene and healing tribute. A beautiful method of expressing a final farewell, of letting go. The launching of White Doves can offer a sensation of tranquillity and calmness, helping bring closure to a member of the family of a loved one.
Balloons launched at a graveside or outside a crematorium are an expanding tribute to conclude a funeral service.
It helps offer comfort, and assists to symbolise the spirit rising toward the skies. Thus releasing the physical existence of a relative or good friend.
Releasing the balloons and enjoying them ascend is a really emotional and austere act of bidding farewell to a loved one. This is particularly memorable for children at a funeral service.
Relatives can write messages on paper notes which are then rolled up and placed in the balloons before they are inflated.
We supply a variety of motorcycles Harley Davison, Suzuki and different Triumphs in addition to our Motorcycle Hearse.
Our Motorcycle Funeral Service offers a dignified solution to many fans of motorcycling.
We can provide a Motorcycle hearse to both spiritual and non-religious people. All motorcycle-sidecar mixes are hand-built, licensed by the DVLA as a hearse, and regularly checked. Each motorcycle hearse includes flower rails and pillion seats. They are sufficient to carry all coffin or casket dimensions.
The sight and noise of a piper complete in Highland dress can give an emotional tribute for a loved one. Include other instruments to bring the depth of power and feeling to a piece of music and a fitting tribute to your loved one.
