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.

I can’t thank Peace Funerals enough for their exceptional kindness, compassion and professionalism. They dealt with everything seamlessly and with great care and they went above and beyond every time and were exceptional in everything they did for us, they became really trusted friends.

Peace Funerals were incredible from start to finish in a very difficult time. This is the first funeral I have ever organised and Peace Funerals made the process much easier and were sympathetic at the same time.

Peace Funerals and especially Gavin made a sad and difficult time so much easier. I had never had to arrange a funeral before but was taken through everything with kindness and patience and everything went so well on the day. I couldn’t have wished for more and am truly grateful.
