A lifelong car enthusiast’s final send off was made extra special thanks to the appearance of a 4×4 hearse.
Peter Rice was so passionate about Land Rovers that not only did he drive them on the roads but raced them off-road too. He also enjoyed other classic cars.
Following his passing, his family decided to have a slightly different hearse which matched one of the loves of his life.
Waterside Funeral Home in Hythe, near Southampton, worked with One Life Lived It – a specialist Land Rover hearse hire company to provide a befitting vehicle for his final journey from the funeral home to Test Valley Crematorium.
They can provide Land Rover hearses in black or green anywhere from Scotland to Kent for families who wants something a little different.
Mobile Funeral Arranger at Waterside Lisa Trott said: “We are always happy to go the extra mile when it comes to arranging a funeral.
“When a family wants something a little bit different or unusual, then we will always try to make it happen.
“This was a fitting tribute to Mr Rice, and we’re glad to have helped with it and sent him on his final journey.”
