Frederick Butcher & Son Funeral Services Switch to Fuel-Efficient Coleman Milne Hybrid

Coleman Milne customer Frederick Butcher & Son Funeral Services have embraced new hybrid technology with their recent fleet upgrade to Norwood and Rosedale. Chris Butcher made the decision to move away from petrol after trialling Coleman Milne’s hybrid demonstrator vehicle. The impressive performance coupled with the whisper quiet drive makes Coleman Milne’s Hybrid Ford collection the ideal ceremonial vehicle choice.

The Norwood Classic hearse with its expansive glass roof, wreath rail and practical internal cover boards is complemented by the luxurious Rosedale limousine. Both vehicles benefit from state-of-the -art Hybrid technology that utilises an internal combustion engine with additional power derived from a larger battery and a more powerful motor. These self-charging Mondeo based vehicles intelligently switch between electric and conventional engine to deliver a greener and more fuel-efficient drive.

The new Ford hybrids are just one of the significant milestones 2019 has seen in Frederick Butcher & Son Funeral Services’ rich South Yorkshire history. Founded in Dinnington in 1933 the business has branched out to second funeral home in Kiveton Park. This will enable Chris, the Butcher family and their staff to continue to use their exceptional skills, forged over four generations, to assist a wider number of family members and loved ones.
