Make a beautiful final journey

Our fleet includes three custom-built Cadillac Premier hearses, two of which were first used at Sir Edmund Hillary’s state funeral. These state-of-the-art vehicles were built in America by Eagle Coach Company who are known for building the highest quality hearses in the industry.

Rounding out our fleet is a classic 1964 Cadillac, a 1969 Cadillac, a Ford Falcon and a Mercedes Benz hearse.

We’re looking forward to welcoming a 1946 Hudson to our fleet soon.

Our 1964 classic Caddilac hearse is a truly beautiful vehicle. With its whitewall tires, tail fins and leather interior it really emulates, class, tradition, and quality.

The second in our fleet of modern Cadillac hearses, Davis 2 has subtle differences from our other modern Caddilac hearses Davis 1 and Davis 2, with the main difference being in the type of mag wheels that have been fitted to the vehicle.

Davis 4

Davis 4, is our only right-hand drive hearse in the fleet. In Navy blue, it allows an option for families that would like something a bit more understated than our Cadillac’s or Mercedes options available. The large window at the rear still allows for great visibility of the casket.

German innovation has rarely looked this good. Davis 8 is a beautiful Mercedes hearse, fondly referred to as The Shark for its swooping lines. The large windows at the rear allow for great visibility of the casket. This is your newest and most modern vehicle currently in our fleet.

More Cadillac Victoria low res 15_900x500 1

Victoria, is our 1969 Caddilac Hearse. The second in our fleet of classic hearses, she is known for her prominent grill, that seems to wrap around the car, with the way the indicators have been designed. A true classic, with its blue interior, Victoria can make any day that extra bit special.
