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.

‘Award winning funeral directors’

Independent Review, 20th April 2022

I would like to thank and would thoroughly recommend Peace Funerals. From the moment I rang them I received prompt and clear help and support throughout what is a difficult time. In particular I would like to thank Charlie, who was knowledgable, kind and courteous. He took time to explain everything...

So glad I chose Peace for Mum's funeral. James was brilliant he made everything so easy and was always available for reassurance when needed. Nothing was too much trouble and the service was perfect. I can't thank him and the staff enough.

Professional caring, attentive, compassionate and thorough, a good mix of old fashioned and modern tech, in fact everything you would want or need at times like these.

Peace Funerals have now dealt with the service for both my parents. The care and attention given by the whole team was exemplary. I would not hesitate to recommend Peace Funerals to anyone who may be in the sad position of requiring the service of a funeral director.
