Ghost Bus Tours London - About the Bus

The Necropolis Bus Company began in the 19th century as a private funeral bus service. The ‘Carcass Coaches’ (as they were known locally) would convey the deceased, pall bearers and up to 50 mourners to the final resting place.

Regular service ran until 1967 when a tragic fire at the company depot razed the building to the ground and destroyed almost the entire fleet of buses.

Only one vehicle was salvaged and was locked away for 40 years, until now....

Having been restored to its original design, this bus is now operated by NECROBUS as vehicle for the Ghost Bus Tours!
