Our latest new Electric Hearse has joined our fleet

We, in partnership with designer Steve Cousins, pioneered the UK’s first all-electric Eco-Hearse in 2013. Nine years later in July 2022 we took delivery of our first full-size electric Nissan hearse.

These hearses have proven popular with our clients, providing the option of a modern and environmentally friendly funeral in and around London.

This new electric hearse is based on a Nissan Leaf. The additional construction is made of recycled carbon fibre which means it weighs only 3% more than the original car. Its zero emissions battery can easily manage woodland burials in the home counties and can travel up to 200 miles on a single charge.

We also have a Nissan Leaf saloon in our vehicle fleet to function as a passenger car for mourners and bearers.

Our early innovation won us The Good Funeral Guide’s Best Green Funeral Director award in 2013 and again in 2017 and we were also shortlisted for the 2015 Camden Business Award’s carbon reduction and energy category.

We are constantly striving to offer our clients what they want. Every funeral we do is different, and we can provide clients with environmentally friendly funerals that are delivered with the same high quality of care and personalisation.

We have used Leverton and Sons for a few of our family funerals and I have always been impressed. This time we used the Muswell Hill branch. Deborah was absolutely amazing. She has the perfect balance between professionalism, kindness, empathy, getting things done and making you feel like you are in safe hands - exactly what you need when going through a painful time. Thank you.

I recently had the unfortunate necessity to arrange a funeral, and I cannot express enough how grateful I am for the outstanding service provided by Leverton’s at kentish Town , From the moment we walked in, Lorna Walkden offered not only professional guidance but also genuine compassion and support during one of the most difficult times of our lives. Lorna Walkden demonstrated an exceptional ability to listen to our needs and wishes, ensuring that every detail was attended to with the utmost care and respect. Lorna’s empathetic nature made us feel understood and comforted, which was incredibly important to us. They handled all the arrangements seamlessly, relieving us of much of the stress associated with planning a funeral. We are also grateful for Lorna for recommending Libby to perform the service , Libby ensured that everything proceeded smoothly and beautifully and delivered a faultless service. In such a challenging time,Lorna Walkden provided a level of service beyond our expectations. Her kindness, professionalism, and dedication to Her work were evident in every interaction we had. I highly recommend Leverton’s at Kentish Town to anyone in need of funeral services. Their support made a significant difference, and we are profoundly thankful for their exceptional service. Also a special mention to one of the Paulbearers called Barry , who explained everything step by step throughout which really helped us on the day , he's kind and empathetic nature was of a great help.

Drew, I just wanted to extend my heartfelt thanks for your incredible support planning mum’s funeral. Throughout the whole organisation you were so calm, reassuring and able to accommodate all of our requests, however unusual some of them may have seemed.

Have benefitted twice from the services of Levertons. Most of us don't expect to be frequent flyers with Funeral Directors but my experience has been great. Thank you to the Denmark Terrace team!

I would like to thank everyone at Leverton & Sons -- especially Carmel for the very professional and sensitive approach to my beautiful wife's funeral. Everyone there commented how well organised it was and professional. You never want to worry about details at times like this. I did not have to at all. Carmel was so helpful before, during and after. This gave everyone the time to focus on the importance of the day. I would highly, highly recommend Leverton & Sons. May my wife rest in peace. James

Mrs Deborah Rush has been a model of the polite, patient, caring, knowledgeable, informative and efficient professional with a light touch one needs as a funeral director. I knew I was in safe hands before I even met her as she kindly moved her own car to allow me to park right outside her office after I had driven around for 20 minutes failing to find anywhere to park for our first planning meeting. Every subsequent communication was clear and mighty helpful guiding me through the whole process so the day of my Aunt's funeral was a polished, dignified and memorable event. All the details were attended to in measured manner; her team of Oliver, Ross and Jason and one gentlemen I failed to note the name of looked after me and the family in their own polite professional style. The team were kind and flexible allowing some of the congregation to assist in the entrance of the coffin at the start of the service. I am most grateful for the truly excellent service provided by Deborah and her team throughout the last three and a half weeks. Thank you.
