Mercedes for R.E Tonkin & Son

New Mercedes Fleet for R.E Tonkin & Son
This photo shows Eric Tonkin (funeral director) and grandson Mark Tonkin standing next to their new Mercedes hearse and limousine supplied by Eddie Marsden of Coleman Milne. Cornish funeral directors, R.E Tonkin & Son made the long trip to Bolton to a Coleman Milne open day in March to look for a replacement for their Ford fleet but were impressed with Mercedes build quality, ride and overall appearance.
R.E Tonkin & Son was formed in 1980 by Eric and since 2007 Mark has joined the business to learn the trade and take the business on into the future.
The new fleet will be kept busy with their own funerals as well as serving a number of funeral directors in south west Cornwall.
