If you are considering hiring one of our VWs for a funeral we need to know where in the country the funeral is taking place in order to calculate the cost for you. If you have a funeral director in mind please would you let us know who they are. Please make sure that if you wish to book with us that you check our availability because we are generally unable to do more than one funeral per day due to the distances we cover. We will pencil a date in the diary for a maximum of 24 hours while you make arrangements, after this time we assume that you do not require the hearse and it will become available again so please keep us informed.

An enquiry is not considered a booking. 


IMPORTANT: To book our service we require a booking form (download below) from you / your funeral director to confirm the details of the funeral. We will respond with a schedule, invoice and a copy of our terms and conditions.

Please ensure that you have received our confirmation by email as it contains information about your booking. No booking will be confirmed without our completed booking form, this is to ensure that mistakes are not made. The details given in our confirmation schedule are what we will work to on the day so please double check it and advise us of any change of plan.

If you do not have confirmation schedule from us then you may not have made a booking with Volkswagen Funerals.  If you are unsure please feel free to double check with us.

         Woodland Burial poem

                 by Pam Ayres


Don't lay me in some gloomy churchyard shaded by a wall
Where the dust of ancient bones has spread a dryness over all,
Lay me in some leafy loam where, sheltered from the cold
Little seeds investigate and tender leaves unfold.
There kindly and affectionately, plant a native tree
To grow resplendent before God and hold some part of me.
The roots will not disturb me as they wend their peaceful way
To build the fine and bountiful, from closure and decay.
To seek their small requirements so that when their work is done
I’ll be tall and standing strongly in the beauty of the sun.
