The final journey of a loved one to their funeral is an important aspect of any service. Whether using a traditional hearse, horse and carriage, or something more personal to the deceased such as motorbike and pillion, A. Slater & Sons can help to arrange transportation that suits. We can also ensure that your loved one’s coffin can suit your individual tastes and requirements, including traditional, wicker or more bespoke.
In terms of the final arrangements for your loved one, you may consider adding a few keepsakes or personal items inside or on top of the coffin or casket. These can include photographs, letters, cards, medals or flowers. In some instances, loved ones will be part of an army regiment or may have something specific to their life and loves. We will discuss this with you to ensure that your loved one’s final journey is exactly how they and you would want it.
Many people today are acutely aware of environmental impacts. The deceased may also have had a strong passion for the environment. A. Slater & Sons will advise you on the best ways to reduce environmental impact, whilst still trying to cater for your wishes. For the full range of coffins and caskets at A. Slater & Sons, please talk to us and we will be sure to be able to cater for your needs.
Your loved one’s final journey should reflect their wishes or something that was important to them. Many of our clients choose particular vehicles such as tractors or trucks (often their own) or vehicles that they may have had a passion for such as motorbikes. Whether you wish to supply your own vehicle, or you would like us to arrange one for you, A. Slater & Sons will ensure that your wishes are met.
