Funeral hand bier to transport the coffin on its final journey.


She's a totally original and beautiful Victorian funeral coffin bier thought to be circa 1850. Most villages would have one at the local church or cemetery and they were used to transport the coffin usually when a family could not afford a horse drawn hearse, mourners would follow on foot. Fast forward over 100 years, she is again available so that family and friends can take charge of the very final journey with love.

Now available for hire locally. (Midlands)

Testimonial -                                        Many more on our Facebook page

Faced with arranging the funeral for my beautiful son, Harry, aged 13, I knew exactly what I didn't want. He was full of life and love and a standard black hearse wasn't for him. Harry loved campervans so when I found Volkswagen Funerals, I knew this would be perfect for Harry's journey. Clare was amazing, she supported me and guided me in what truly is the worst experience of my life. Hearseby was personalised with ribbons and a flag in Harry's favourite colours, I knew Harry would be smiling with approval. Thank you Clare for doing what you do and for holding my hand in the lead up, on the day and with your messages that have followed. I am sure Harry sends his thanks too xx
