R Wallace & Son is a popular and well-respected independent family-run funeral directors primarily based in rural Crowle, Scunthorpe, with a second branch in Epworth, Doncaster. The firm recently took delivery of a quality used Mercedes-Benz limousine from Superior UK Ltd – this vehicle completes a full Mercedes fleet, including two Mercedes estate vehicles and a Mercedes Hearse.
Brothers Ryan and Edward Wallace are the third generation of the Wallace family to run the firm, following in the footsteps of their father, Stuart Wallace, and grandfather Ronald Wallace who founded the business over 50 years ago in 1972. Ronald and Stuart Wallace began their career as stonemasons supplying headstones and memorials to local funeral directors before deciding to set up for themselves – the business has since earned an enviable reputation and is trusted by local families to direct around 180 funerals each year.
Edward Wallace explains why he and his brother Ryan chose to maintain a Mercedes Fleet and their experience purchasing a quality used vehicle from Superior UK.
Edward commented, “We strive to provide the best possible service for families and feel our vehicles are a crucial part of this – the aesthetics of our Mercedes-Benz vehicles strike the right note, make a good impression and provide a dignified final journey for loved ones.” He added, “The premium build quality means we have been able to purchase used funeral vehicles that run like new and will be reliable fleet vehicles for years to come”.
The brothers were thrilled when Superiors Greg Platt delivered the latest addition to the fleet; Edward commented, “This is the first vehicle we’ve purchased from Superior UK, and we couldn’t be happier – it was delivered in pristine condition inside and out.” He added, “Superiors Greg Platt was so easy to deal with – knowledgeable, well-informed and honest – Superior certainly live up to their reputation for excellent service, and we look forward to returning to them in the future”.
