We are sorry this vehicle is no longer available 

VW passenger bus 'Winnie

This is 'Winnie' our passenger bus for family members, she seats up to 5 passengers. Winnie is an 11 window kombi and was born in 1967 and lived in Australia until she was imported to the UK a few years ago. Winnie underwent a serious transformation to become a beautiful bus as you see here. 


Winnie gets complements wherever she goes.

Available in the Midlands: Mileage limit applies to Winnie and she may not be available in the winter months.

Winnie features safari windows both front and rear and has two pop out windows at the side to keep you cool, she also has a gas heating system because VWs are notoriously chilly in the winter. Please contact us to see if we can help. 




If you wish to have music as you go then a memory stick can be used to play MP3s through the stereo or an ipod connection.

Please be aware that Winnie is an old dear and being a passenger in her is an experience. Please understand that she can be a bit jolty and on some British roads you will feel all the bumps. Winnie has been 'stylishly' lowered and this leaves her with fairly hard suspension, its all part of the VW experience but we need you to understand that it will not necessarily be the smoothest limousine ride but more of an adventure especially on our roads. Please ensure all passengers are aware before embarking!

While our hearse travels on board our specially converted lorry we do not have room to carry two at a time and this is why Winnie is limited to funerals nearer to our base within 40 miles unless not hired with our hearse in which case the lorry can then cater for her.


Local wedding hire

When people see Winnie they regularly ask us if she is available for a wedding so we may be able to book if your wedding is taking place inside of our local area which is 25 mile radius of CV10 0NB. So we have decided Winnie is now available for LOCAL weddings (please contact us with your requirements), we are very sorry she is not available for proms or nights out due to licensing laws and insurances.

For weddings please email us or call the office with the date and if possible all details of addresses and venues and the time the car is required for and we will quote for you.           Contact Winnie

         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.
