Where we cover

Our service is available throughout Kent, Essex, London, Surrey, and East Sussex. If you need us to travel further afield, this may be possible depending on the location, however prices may rise because of this.


Does the funeral have to be for a veteran?
No, the service is aimed primarily at veterans but we are happy to work with anybody who is interested in the armed forces, land rovers, or just want something different for their funeral.
How far in advance do we have to book?
We don't have a set limit on this but it will depend on our availability. We always aim to respond as quickly as possible to booking enquiries so if the funeral date is soon and we are available on that date, booking with shorter notice won't be an issue.
How much do you charge?
Our prices can vary depending on what your need and any specific requests, or if there is a need for us to travel further. You can contact us to ask any specific questions about pricing.
What will your driver wear on the day?
This is always up to you depending on what you would prefer for the funeral. It can be No. 1 Dress, No. 2 Dress, Combat Dress, etc.
Have you served in the military?
Yes, our owner Colin Port served in the Royal Military Police for 6 years and is now still serving in the Army Cadet Force.
How many vehicles can we have?
This depends on availability of our drivers on the day. When you contact us to book, we will be able to tell you the number of drivers available for your date.
Do you liaise with the funeral directors or do we have to arrange that?
We always aim to make the process as easy for you as possible, so we will liaise with the funeral directors where possible. For more details about how we work, please see the 'Booking' section on our homepage, or feel free to contact us to ask any questions.
