Mercedes Upgrade for Dorset Funeral Directors

Having served Christchurch and the surrounding areas for over 100 years, independent funeral directors and long-time Coleman Milne customers Miller Bros & F. P. Butler are continuing to flourish and have every reason to boast about their success.
As well as making a significant investment in their fleet, Miller Bros are also keen to invest in their workforce. Stuart and Helen Major are pleased to welcome their daughter Jessica to the business who will follow in her father’s footsteps to provide local families with continuity and first-class service as she begins her training to become a full-time funeral director.
Their new hearse and limousine, selected from the Mercedes E-Class range, have been built to the highest standards at Coleman Milne’s North West production facility using only the finest of materials and offer an unparalleled specification. Personalisation is also included as part of the deal, with a range of options and accessories available for customers to tailor the vehicle to their specific requirements.
Founded by Alfred Miller, the business was later passed down to his grandson Terry and, upon his retirement in 2011, husband and wife duo Stuart and Helen purchased shares in the business to become Company Directors.

“We are delighted with our new Mercedes hearse and limousine,” commented Stuart Major. “Having always used Coleman Milne to supply our vehicles, we felt that the high specification of these models fulfilled our expectations in terms of comfort and style. The new fleet has already been seen by local residents who have acknowledged how wonderful they look. It’s an exciting time for us and we’re looking forward to the future to build on our supportive and dignified reputation.”
