The word "hearse" is derived from the Middle English word "herse" which referred to a specific type of candelabra that was often placed on top of a coffin. Around the 17th century, the word was being used to refer to the horse-drawn carriages that transported the casket to the place of burial during a funeral procession. The image to the left is a hearse from the Crane and Breed company who was the first hearse manufacturer. Today, the term "funeral coach" is more frequently used by funeral directors around the world.
