Our Vehicles

Since the 1974 acquisition of local carriage master John Sheward & Sons, Christopher and David developed one of the finest fleets of ceremonial vehicles in the Midlands.

We offer a modern fleet of Jaguar hearses and limousines; each vehicle being built to our own specification and replaced every 3 years, thus affording the highest level of luxury and reliability.

John Wilcox provides our Jaguar vehicles, and is the only Jaguar approved coachbuilder in Europe.

We also offer a fully restored 1960’s Austin Princess hearse and limousine.  The limousine is identical to vehicles which were used by the Royal household for many years.

Our Mercedes Benz Vito ambulance has been designed specifically to offer the ultimate first call vehicle.  The interior is furnished in exactly the same materials as a funeral hearse, whilst the exterior is on a more modern design.

All Conveyances are carried out by two fully trained uniformed members of staff, using the same equipment as the Ambulance Service.  On collection from the house, or Care Home, a pillow and freshly laundered bed sheet is used, thus again affording the utmost respect and dignity.
