Yeovil man receives his last wish and a Scottish floral tribute
Vintage Lorry Funerals’ diligence in contacting florists when planning a funeral came to the fore during the preparation of a Yeovil funeral. Information regarding the shapes and sizes of tributes is required to plan out a layout on the deck. However, it is also important to ask about the colour and types of flowers so that similar shades can be separated in the display.
When a minimalistic funeral in Yeovil was being planned it became evident that most tributes contained Sea Holly, which is colloquially known as ‘Thistles’ in the flower trade. Further investigation revealed that the rationale behind the choice of thistles was because the deceased loved taking an annual holiday in Scotland.
Vintage Lorry Funerals then contacted the widow and offered to position the Flag of St. Andrew, or Saltire, on the headboard of the 1950 Leyland Beaver and this offer was warmly received. This picture is treasured by the widow as it depicts the love her husband had for Scotland.
