    Please discuss your thoughts and ideas with us and we will do everything we can to help and make everything as special as possible.

    The Cortege Journey
    The hearse and following vehicles are known as the cortege, we will of coarse discuss with you where the cortege is to travel to and from and if you would like the cortege to take a particular route.

    As the deceased’s final journey, you may wish the cortege to travel a special route to the ceremony in order to pass a point of significance, such as a place of work or leisure.

    Please discuss your thoughts and ideas with us.
