Cochrane’s Funeral Directors take delivery of the UK’s first AMG Line Mercedes

Family-run Cochrane’s Funeral Directors are always ahead of the game when it comes to offering the absolute best in fleet. They take pride of place in being the first in the UK to receive the Mercedes AMG Line plug-in hybrid hearse and limousine.

Elevated into a superior class, the redesigned AGM body styling features an unmistakable diamond radiator grille, striking headlamps and 18” alloy wheels. The beauty of this range is its entirely silent operation, and it enables families to lay their loved ones to rest in a dignified and eco-friendly manner.

Built to exacting Mercedes standards, the business opted for the sophisticated Selenite Grey paint finish and a coordinating expansive Vogue Grey deck on the hearse. This outstanding range has the added benefit of significantly lowered CO2 output than typical hybrid, petrol and diesel cars and results in significant savings on fuel costs.

Cochrane’s Funeral Directors have been in operation as long as Coleman Milne have been producing Mercedes and hold an esteemed reputation for their unprecedented bereavement support and funeral services. The independent family business has seen many changes in the funeral trade over the years and embrace innovative technology to serve their clients ever changing needs.

Ian Cochrane commented:

“Purchasing our first new fleet was a very proud moment for our family, especially for Ivan and Marlene who established the company in 1973 and at 77 and 76 are still very active in the daily running of the business.

Our new Hybrid Mercedes fleet not only combines luxury with impressive fuel efficiency, but it also makes a greener proposition with less environmental impact. With the ever-increasing demand for eco-conscious ceremonies, we will be in a position to offer our families greater choice.”
