Operating throughout the North West providing high quality reliable services.
M W Shepherd is an independent family run business which has been operating for nearly 100 years. Located in South Cumbria, we provide vehicles and services to funeral businesses across Cumbria and Lancashire.
Operating a fleet of Volvo funeral vehicles, we offer not just procession vehicles, but can provide funeral support from 1st call removal, national repatriation or additional staff at a funeral as required. We are passionate about providing a high quality, reliable service with our vehicles being presented to a high standard.
The company was formed by Thomas Birckett Shepherd back in the 1920’s starting out as a taxi business in the Grange Over Sands area. In the 1950’s Myles William Shepherd purchased our first Austin 16 hearse from a local company and later purchased a new Morris Oxford hearse built by Woodhall Nicholson.
In the 1970’s Brian Shepherd joined the business providing procession vehicles until present day. The company is currently in it’s 4th generation with the recent addition of Brian’s son, Matthew Shepherd.
Over the years a wide range of vehicle services have been provided from local Taxi, Lakeland Tours to chauffeur services across the UK.
