Funeral Services

At Malrae Hire we offer to do everything regarding the funeral for the family, including arranging caterers, transport, printing of full colour bulletins, arranging musicians, white doves, balloons, candles, flowers etc. We pride ourselves on the fact that we are able to do most things that the family requests of us. We are of the opinion that at the time of arranging a funeral, it should not be expected of a bereaved family member to run around arranging different aspects of the funeral.

Our mission is to provide families with a dignified, caring service at a fair value.


When deciding on the most appropriate form of transport for the funeral cortège (the hearse and the cars following in the funeral procession), you may wish to consider some of the following issues:

Type and Style of Hearse: For example, would you prefer a traditional, standard hearse, chauffeur–driven luxury car, or maybe some other, more personalised mode of transport?

Size of Funeral Cortège: How many principal mourners will require transport to and from the funeral and following the service? Bear in mind that a standard funeral vehicle carries up to six people, comfortably. Also consider who is to travel in each car in the cortège.

Wheelchair Access: Do any of the mourners in the cortège require wheelchair accessible vehicles, as this may affect your choice of transport hire?

Funeral Procession Route: You will need to be specific about the route that the cortège is required to follow, e.g. departure and final destination points, whether you would like the cortège to follow a special route and if you require transport to a different destination after the funeral.
