Our buses are hired for transporting mourners at funeral services by taking part in the funeral cortege. Typically, there may be a procession with a hearse, a limousine carrying close family members of the deceased, and our bus can follow sedately in procession through the streets.
This can provide travel between home or hotel, memorial service, burial service and wake.
A classic red London bus is sometimes chosen to appropriately mark the passing of a loved one whose career was in the industry, such as a bus driver or conductor, or who held a passion for such a vehicle.
At this difficult time for the bereaved, be assured that everyone at Timebus will be sensitive and sympathetic to the occasion.
Some large London cemeteries we have visited on hire are:
In most cases a hearse is provided by the funeral directors for the coffin or ashes of the deceased. We have been asked to carry a coffin; our Routemaster Express vehicles are suitable for this. The coffin is rested in the lower saloon by the bearers, who would also accompany the coffin during the journey. Other passengers would travel upstairs, where there are 32 seats available.
