Vehicle or Horse Drawn Casket Coach

The word hearse initially comes from the Middle English word herse, which referred to large ornate candleholders placed atop coffins; sometime during the 17th century people began using the word to refer to the horse-drawn carriages that carried caskets to the grave during funeral processions. The first hearse in the US with an internal combustion engine appeared in 1909, at the funeral of Wilfrid A. Pruyn. The undertaker, H.D. Ludlow, commissioned a vehicle to be built from the body of a horse-drawn hearse and the chassis of a bus. By the 1920s motorized hearses were the norm. In the thirties the longer Landau-style hearse was introduced, with its sleek, limousine-like form, a style that remains popular today.
