Funky Funeral Term: Funeral Coach

Posted on: March 24, 2010

For you, Howard …

I was speaking with a business colleague the other day explaining that funeral directors use some confusing terms.  Case in point … I asked him what he thought the term “Funeral Coach” referred to.  He thought I was talking about a person, rather than a thing.  A funeral coach, is a fancy term for a hearse.  Thought you might like to see a few examples:

Typical current day example used in Canada/US


Motorcycle hearse


Bike hearse from Sunset Hills Cemetery, Eugene, Oregon


Japanese hearse


Horse drawn funeral coach

Wow! Very interesting hearses! hahaha!!

Oh my. 🙂 If I can afford, I’ll definitely go for the last one. There’s something so… romantic (!) about it. 🙂

The horse and carriage coach is fabulous. In some municipalities, the use of this mode of transportation may require a parade permit be obtained for the service day.

Some of them are gorgeous. I would love to have a send off in one of them!

very nice photos is a very good funeral service
