Railway Funeral, Burial on Own Land…..whatever you want

If you’re trying to arrange an alternative type of funeral, this service is for you. We guide you through the practicalities of arranging a special and unique event.

If a different type of funeral is your wish, we will do our very best to help you achieve it. Peace Funerals have been supporting families for over 23 years to create special funerals which reflect the personality and interests of the person who has died.

Our team of experienced, creative, problem-solving professionals will help you to design and implement a funeral that feels fitting and personal. 

From funerals where the last journey is on a steam hauled train, to those where the burial takes place on the family’s own land. Or ceremonies in different types of venue; or funerals based on a theme (a pastime or sport); or where the family provide their own vehicle for the coffin, whatever your wishes, we can help.

When nearly all funerals that took place were black cars, traditional coffins, and vicars, Peace Funerals broke the mould and made new choices available. If you want something different, allow us to use our experience to help you.

On behalf of all of the family I would like to thank Stephen and all the team for your support and help organising my dads funeral.

Cannot praise Peace Funerals enough after they were engaged to conduct the funeral ceremony of my later father Peter or Pete as he was known to many.
