  • How to book bus places

    To book a place on the bus, or for more information, call us on 028 9027 0296. Our staff will ask you to confirm that you are aged 50 or over. You must bring along proof of age when you board the bus as the driver may check. You may bring one companion with you, if you book for them, even if they are under 18.

    To help us plan our route, tell us when booking the number of the family grave or memorial trees you want to visit. If you don’t have this information, our staff can help locate it if you provide them with the name of the deceased person and their date of death.
