Funeral directors share 10 most unique funeral car requests – from milk floats to lorries
Co-op Funeralcare. Co-op Funeral care says around half of its directors have been asked to source an unusual vehicle.
The black hearse is likely one of the first things you think of when picturing a funeral but more and more people are breaking away from tradition and opting to make their final ride a memorable one.
A report by Co-op Funeralcare shows a 21 per cent rise in requests for alternative modes of transport with just under a half (48 per cent) of its funeral directors being asked to source a unique hearse for a funeral.
In fact, interest in an alternative to the traditional black hearse has seen Co-op add two new vehicles to its fleet – one being rainbow-coloured and another adorned with poppies.

Speaking to the experts about what they think has led to this shift towards more unique funeral arrivals, the majority said that people feel more able to act on their loved ones, personal wishes, than they would have previously.
And creativity doesn’t just stem to the color of hearses, in fact more people are choosing to ditch the synonymous cab entirely in exchange for something a bit different.
