  • How do I book?
    We generally work closely with Funeral Directors, and therefore suggest that you ask your Funeral Director to contact us to make the necessary arrangements on your behalf.

  • Is a Morris Minor Traveller big enough?
    As you will appreciate, a Morris Minor Traveller is not a large vehicle, so there are inevitably some limitations due to the internal space available:

    Coffins/Caskets, The maximum (external) size of a traditional-shaped coffin that we can accommodate is 78 inches long, 24 inches across the shoulder, and 15 inches deep. We are unable to accommodate caskets.

    Floral tributes, We are happy to carry one or possibly two tributes on the coffin, but these can cover no more than two-thirds of the length of the coffin, and can be no higher than 8 inches. We can also carry one medium display behind the rear seat of the car. For additional flowers, you may need to discuss with your Funeral Director, the use of a seperate "flower car."

  • Do you "trailer" the hearse?
    No, we don't. As enthusiasts, we believe in using our classic cars, and this hearse is no exception. Driving the car means that we do not incur the additional cost of running a large tow vehicle and trailer, which would inevitably be passed on to you, the customer. It also helps to reduce our "carbon footprint."
