We Brits are also good at that game and in 2008, we produced the first book solely dealing with the British hearse. Titled ‘A Pictorial History of the British Hearse 1800 – 2008’, it was a limited run and sold out. We distributed it ourselves and therefore you will not find it available from book stores.
Next we looked at Irish hearses, a smaller version because despite writing to over 200 funeral directors throughout Ireland, we only heard from five! And again, a limited run was done and all are sold out.

Then in 2012 we started on a new series of books looking at the changing designs via period adverts (use the drop down menu to read about and purchase these volumes).
