A stylish exit

Living near the large cemetery and crematorium on Chanterlands Avenue means funeral cortèges are a common sight in these parts. Most involve black limousines but I've noticed a worrying trend lately for grey hearses (!); this will never do. A few, very few, involve the old style horse drawn hearse like this one that clip-clopped slowly along Cottingham Road yesterday; a fine if, as I suspect, expensive send off.


  1. I agree that it's a fine send-off. Funerals are expensive. Might as well have a good one.

    I actually went to one yesterday. Coincidence.

  2. I don't think I've ever seen the horse drawn hearse here, aside from pictures.
