First New Hearse Celebrations for Gaulds Funeral Service

New Coleman Milne customer Gaulds Funeral Services are, in their own words, continuing to invest in their family business for the benefit of clients and their families.

Gaulds are now the proud owners of a brand new Coleman Milne Norwood hearse, a vehicle which also represents their first ever brand new hearse. Based on the Ford Mondeo, the contemporary styling of the Norwood hearse effortlessly combines space and comfort with sleek lines and a distinctive appearance to offer an unsurpassed experience of the funeral ceremony.
An independent business, sibling duo John and David represent the third generation of the Gauld family to operate the 3 branches in Creiff, Aberfeldy and Pitlochry. For almost 30 years, Gaulds Funeral Services have provided an organised yet compassionate approach to each funeral they undertake.
In addition, Gaulds Funeral Services also operates a conservation burial ground at Strowan Cemetry. The striking yet tranquil location overlooks the River Earn and provides families with an eco-friendly alternative to a traditional funeral. This area promotes the use of eco-friendly products including wicker and bamboo coffins and prohibits the placement or use of any product which will have a detrimental effect on the natural environment.
Speaking of the delivery, John was delighted to accept delivery of his new vehicle from Coleman Milne’s Tony Kerr, adding:

“Our thanks go out to all at Coleman Milne funeral vehicles, Bolton, for supplying us with such a fine motor hearse – the very latest & best in terms of style, technology & elegance available anywhere in the UK.”

As a token of their gratitude, John even arranged with a bakery local to Coleman Milne’s office to have 4 beautiful cakes created for the team to enjoy.
