Funeral Service

Send off your loved one in style in our Black or White horse drawn hearse pulled by a pair or team of horses.


Alternatively we have our Country Style Hearse with a solid oak coffin deck which is much less formal, ideal for Woodland and Green Burials and for lovers of the countryside and great outdoors.


Layer Marney Horse Drawn Carriages pride ourselves on being professional, friendly and having a helpful and understanding approach to our customers so that we can provide a memorable send off for your loved one.


We hope that our horse drawn hearse service can bring a little ray of sunshine to a sad day and help to celebrate a life and memory with style and grace.







We offer a choice of black or white traditional drapes and a wide choice of coloured feather plumes to personalise the horses and hearse for your day. We are happy for our horses to have small flowers attached to their harness if you wish.


Please contact us to discuss any special requirements that you have we are here to help.



How we keep our costs so competitive.

We are a totally independent family-run company, we are hands on and look after the horses daily needs and stable duties ourselves, which is why we know our horses inside out.


Paulette does all of our admin work, so there are no booking or agents fees.

One of the greatest expenses of a commercial carriage horse business is horse shoeing.

Alan is a qualified registered farrier so takes care of all our horses feet every month at cost.

These great savings are passed on to you the customer.
