Horse Drawn Hearse
Our purpose-built, handmade horse drawn hearse is meticulously maintained. It has access from both the front and back allowing the interior to be adorned with floral tributes to add colour and sentiment. It has ample space and can therefore accommodate caskets of all sizes.
The hearse is driven by our highly experienced and traditionally dressed coachmen. To suit your preferences, we offer a choice of attire for our coachmen. Options include traditional attire such as cloak dress coats or tails, black or pinstripe morning trousers, ties or cravats, top hats and gloves. Alternatively, if you prefer a country style funeral, we can offer our dray with a single horse. For this type of funeral, our coachmen can be dressed less formally with a flat cap, country-style shirt, waistcoat and trousers.
At KC Carriages, we offer the Princess Diana carriage which is the only one in the UK. Children’s funerals can be themed from unicorns with colourful plumes to a favourite character. We do everything to ensure that we create a special send-off for your loved one.
Horses for Funerals
We have 16 carriage horses that can be provided in matching pairs of black or white. Traditionally, black is the preferred choice for a funeral, however white pairs are available should this be your preference.
Our matched pair of purebred Dutch Friesian Stallions have an incredibly placid nature and majestic appearance. Originally trained in Ireland, they have worked as a pair for many years, providing traditional horse drawn funeral services across the region.
Horse and Carriage Funeral Cost
The cost of horse and carriage hire for funerals will depend on the location of the funeral and your preferences. We always aim to keep our costs affordable, so contact us to make an enquiry.
