...

Ian Hazel Funerals Fleet Hearse When Ian first started his business he tended to hire in cars and a hearse when needed, a principle that some funeral directors still do today. It's a way of keeping costs down and helps businesses cope with periods of high demand, without having to buy and maintain larger than normal fleets which would lie unused for a lot of the time. Ian hired these cars from his father-in-law who also used Daimlers that carried specific registration numbers, all of which used the digits "777". he first hearse that Ian actually purchased was a Daimler DS420 hearse produced by the specialist coach builders Woodall Nicholson in Lancashire from his father-in-law, registered 777 FCH. He then went on to purchase his own DS420 limousines and a Startin's DS420 "low'line" hearse. He decided to buy in specific registration numbers with the digits "777", and he still maintains those numbers on all his vehicles today.
...
Initially Ian purchased a single hearse and one car, both 4.2 litre models. A year later he purchased another two new cars and a year later yet another car, although this time a pre-owned example, making a total of the four cars you see depicted here along with the hearse and one XJ8 model retained from the previous fleet.
The vehicles don't cover a high mileage, around 3000 miles per annum for a car and perhaps up to 4000 miles for a hearse. Two of my final questions to Ian also related to the cars.
...

What next? "I have already seen the latest New XJ in prototype form at Wilcox and surprisingly, despite its very modern styling, found that the stretch works very well. Although there won't be any Daimler badged versions available, I will almost certainly be moving on to that model later, probably in 3.0 litre diesel form. "And finally, I ought to mention that Ian Hazel is a member of the Club and does own his own personal Jaguar, a classic E-type Series 2 fhc.
