Carrying out the arrangements yourself when someone has died

Transporting the coffin

You will need to consider how you will transport the coffin from the house or hospital to the crematorium.

Vehicles typically used include an estate car, transit van, hired traditional hearse or a horse-drawn hearse.

If you wish, the deceased may be brought into the care of the crematorium early in the morning on the day of the funeral. Please let us know in advance.
