    At last, a colourful hearse. It is lovely Poppy. I hope this inspires people to consider using their own/friends vehicles to carry their loved one’s coffin.

    The other thing that we need is coffins with wooden handles instead of the plastic ersatz metal.

    I love it – the black hearse has had its day! My own Mercedes van is lovely, but I’m slightly embarassed to say is very black. (At least it’s not one of those horrid double decker things the big firms use, to cram up to five bodies inside, thus making a huge profit on local hospital removals.)

    Anyway, I digress as usual. For a very long time I have wanted to do something unusual to our immaculate nearly new (black) van. Yours has inspired me – I may have to ‘wrap’ it – and will certainly talk to my sign lady about something less intimidating xx

    Well done Poppy. The Poopymobile will be a great advert for what you do. Bet your website hits treble!!

    Top marks, Poppy, on the vehicle wrap – it fits your operation so well.

    None of us “oldies” would either have thought or dared to be so bloody obvious with such a modern and tasteful statement.

    Excellent advert, for both yourself, and the trade in general. Ab Fab Van.

    Thanks so much for the support. It’s been a long journey (my dad deserves a medal for sourcing the taps in the back – he found them in a skip in the end!). All your lovely words mean a lot.

    Have you been in business long? Have you performed many funerals?

      Who are you Peter?
      How many have you “performed”?

    Bright, fresh, and…
    not scary – like a black/grey ‘private ambulance’
    I’d much prefer my Mum/Dad/whoever to be taken on their final journey in a Poppy-mobile!!

    Wow, I think you are really going to turn heads with this Poppy. Far more intriguing than a spooky black hearse.

    Best of luck
