Our Services

We offer a 24 hour, 365 days a year service lead by Keith W Boraston and family members  to assist in your time of need.

All on-call duties are treated with ultimate discretion.

 

 

 


We have a selection of private ambulances with the latest equipment to deal with all aspects & conditions to remove your loved one with dignity and care, whether from a hospital, nursing home or private address. 99% of calls will be dealt with by Keith Boraston personally and responded to within the hour and dealt with accordingly.

All vehicles are driven with care & consideration by fully uniformed trained staff.

Hearse & limousines

We pride ourselves with our very distinctive fleet of vehicles.

The cars are all maintained to a very high standard and are finished in gleaming black and purple two-tone paintwork.

The hearse takes the coffin/casket and bearing team.

Our stretch limos will carry up to seven passengers in each car. We also have a matching estate car to offer if you don't request  a large limo.

If the above vehicles are not to your style and you request traditional black cars we can attend to your every request.

 


Horse & Carriage
We work closely with a local carriage master and can supply white or black carriages with matching horses and Keith W Boraston will conduct the service as requested and travel to the service with the carriage.

Tribute Car


Chapels of Rest/Resting Room

We have three large Chapels of Rest and private resting rooms which are all fully air-conditioned and multi-faith for families to pay their respects.



Mortuary and Doctors rooms.
All are fitted with the latest equipment and are all temperature controlled with the personal care as standard with embalming facilities if requested.

Coffins & Caskets


Coffins, caskets, wicker, bespoke artwork, bamboo - again the list is endless.  We have booklets along with stock to show you if you require something special and different.


Arranging a Service
All arrangements can be dealt with in various ways to suit you.

Our preference is to meet and greet you personally in the comfort of your own home if possible and talk to you in detail on our first meeting.
