The Butterfields fleet of funeral vehicles

We are very proud of the Butterfields fleet which has had a reputation from the horse drawn days, of being well turned out and up to date. We took delivery in mid 2017 of a new fleet of funeral cars, a purpose built black Jaguar Hearse and 2 Limousines. These are regularly updated every 3 years in order to ensure that we maintain our reputation for high quality service.

We can also provide a silver, closed or midi hearse, based on the long wheelbase VW Transporter. This is used in order to maintain dignity, when a person has to be removed from a residence, and it can also be used in order to reduce costs for families when required. (see our simple funeral)

We have our own Horse Drawn Marston City Hearse purchased by Charles T. Butterfield around 1898, which is still available should a family wish to use it, (although certain restrictions can apply).

A new addition to our fleet: EAST YORKSHIRE BUS 490 – Y49 VRH - following extensive restoration by our Funeral Director Chris, Butterfields are now able to offer a bus for hire to our clients. This would be particularly fitting for any family members who were transport enthusiasts. The vehicle is also available to transport larger numbers of mourners to attend a funeral. The bus can seat 28 seated passengers and also has a ramp facility available for disabled clients.

Not owned by us but available to us are a wide variety of funeral cars to transport the coffin and in some cases mourners. Land Rovers, Double Decker Bus, Lorry, VW Camper Van, Motor Cycle Hearses, Hearses and Limousines in assorted colours and types to mention but a few. Please ask if you have any specific requests as we would be happy to help with this no matter if the funeral is in Rotherham, Sheffield, Barnsley, Doncaster or further afield..
