A Rolls Royce Funeral

Carlise funeral home organise a fitting tribute

When a loved one passes away it’s important to us to help make their funeral as personal to them as possible. Recently at our funeral home in Carlisle, Funeral Director Andrew Wilkinson was able to do that really well.

The funeral was for a former Rolls Royce engineer who spent time working at RAF Spadeadam on rocket engines. So what more of a fitting tribute than to have a Rolls Royce hearse lead the funeral procession.

What’s more, a special floral arrangement was made of the “Blue Streak”: a British Medium-range Ballistic Missile that the gentleman had worked on.

Well done to Andrew and the team at Carlisle, Spencer Street.
