Our Hearses

As the vehicle that will bear your loved one to their final resting place, the hearse is the focal point of the funeral cortege. For that reason alone, we ensure that our hearses run smoothly and are of the highest standard in appearance. We will provide one of our chauffeur-driven hearses to carry the coffin to the funeral service, crematorium or place of committal. Depending upon the type of service you choose, we can personalise the route of this final journey to take in locations that, during life, may have had a specific meaning to your loved one. A motorised hearse is included in the price of the funeral, but we also have the capacity, at an additional cost, to offer horse-drawn hearses, along with a range of alternative carriages. Popular choices include campervans, motorcycles and fire engines. To find out more, speak to one of the team.

Our Limousines

We have a fleet of funeral limousines available for use by you and your immediate family, and, if desired, extended family and friends. Built to the highest specifications and professionally maintained to ensure continual service, our chauffer-driven limousines provide a comfortable and dignified method by which to travel to your loved one's funeral. Dependent upon the style of vehicle, our funeral cars are usually capable of carrying a maximum of between seven and nine mourners. It is traditional for immediate family to take the first and, if necessary, second limousine, with other family and friends using any additional cars or following on in their own vehicles. To find out more about our funeral limousines, speak to one of the team at our funeral home today.

Essential Third Party Costs

Additional costs need to be paid to various third parties in order for The Tyneside Funeral to take place. Find out what these are and why they are necessary:

Overview

We will help you create a dignified and personalised funeral. Although our prices include all that we do to ensure you and your loved one receive the greatest of care, there are also third party costs, which are supplementary to the overall price. Known as disbursements, these may include fees that are payable to the crematorium, the doctor and to the minister or celebrant. The payment of these external costs will be managed by us, along with the coordination of all the documents required to legally allow your loved one's funeral to proceed. Details of the third party costs are included upon your invoice. Select a tab to find out more about some common disbursements. For information regarding the third party costs for a burial, call us on 0191 215 0775.

Example Third Party Costs

  • Cremation£845
  • Doctor's Fees£82
  • Minister or Celebrant£220
  • Total essential third party costs£1147

Doctor's Fees

In the majority of cases, for a cremation to go ahead, it is necessary to obtain a certificate, signed by a doctor and confirming the cause of death. The doctors will charge a fee for this service, totalling £82 for the certificate. There are occasions when the certificate is not needed, for instance if a coroner has reviewed the circumstances of your loved one's passing, but most of the time they are a legal requirement. Although the doctor's fees are not included in the price, we will arrange for the payment of this third party cost, along with ensuring the documentation is present and correct, as part of our service to you.

Minister or Celebrant

The cremation service will usually be taken by a funeral celebrant or a minister. They will address the congregation and, if requested, provide a eulogy to your loved one. Costs can vary, but as a reference we have listed the fee for a Church of England minister, which is £199. We can offer guidance on choosing a suitable minister or celebrant to preside over your loved one's funeral service, but you are equally welcome to use somebody you already have a preference for. Popular choices to lead a cremation service are:
  • Religious leaders
  • Civil celebrants
  • Humanist celebrants
  • Friends or members of the family
