Our Services - E Taylor & Son

Reliable and understanding family run funeral directors in Carterton since 1885


We thrive to provide bespoke funeral services which are fully personalised to your needs. From burials to cremations, from economic services to full marching bands, we, at E Taylor & Son, will work to provide a service to suit any circumstance.


The most traditional funeral method is the natural burial. Anyone searching for somewhere to hold a special and unforgettable funeral will find one of our natural burial grounds to be the perfect choice.


A somewhat preferred choice in the modern day is the Cremation method.  Generally a more economical option.  There are a selection of Crematoriums in our area for you to choose from and once the Cremation has taken place, we can collect the remains, for you to decide whether to scatter or bury them in a Churchyard or Cemetery.  We offer a wide selection of Urns and Caskets.

Hearse Vehicles

Here at E Taylor & Son, we are proud to offer a wide range of vehicles to suit every need. From the traditional black hearse, to a horse driven hearse or motorbike driven hearse, to suit the theme of the complete funeral service.


Many opt for traditional music to be played during the service. We offer many services which can include BagPipes & Marching Bands. Contact us for more information on bands, musicians and funeral music / songs.

Our Chapel of Rest

Our Chapel of Rest is a peaceful, beautiful and natural area for your loved ones to remain in peace for the duration of the service.


The vehicle customarily used for transporting a person who has died to their final resting place is a Traditional Black Hearse.

Our Fleet of Hearses and Limousines are Coach-built here in the UK to offer smart, and dignified motor transport.

All are Chauffeur driven by our own staff.

Thank you for all the help, support and guidance on the day of dad's funeral last week. Every one of you were a tower of strength who made the day much easier for us than it might have been.
