Brand New Coleman Milne Hearse for Cornish Funeral Director

Share This Post

Cornwall-based Arthur W Bryant Funeral Service have accepted delivery of their first ever Coleman Milne vehicle, a brand new Mercedes E-Class hearse.

The vehicle, based on the E220 diesel, incorporates an expansive glass roof which allows natural light to flood the deck area and contrasts the traditional black paintwork to give a modern twist on a classic. Other features on this particular vehicle include wreath rails, coverboards and bespoke illuminated signage.

Founded over 50 years ago in Bude by Arthur, the family business has grown consistently to encompass two new branches in Camelford and Holsworthy and is now in the capable hands of son Kingsley and grandson William.

As an independent company, they recognise the need for industry excellence and are proud to make use of their skills and experiences. Both Arthur and Kingsley held regional roles for Cornwall in the National Association of Funeral Directors (NAFD) during the 1990s, and William is the current Cornwall Area President. Kingsley also holds the accolade of being Cornwall’s only second NAFD National President since 1905.
