Terry Layton received a grand procession of more than a dozen classic cars and motorbikes during his final journey from the MOT bay of The Village Garage in Colden Common, which he had run for forty years.

Terry was taken to the crematorium in a 1936 Rolls Royce, closely followed by two Bentleys, previously owned by the Sultan of Brunei.

Terry’s son, Tom Layton said he would always have fond memories of his father, who has been described as a quiet man with a love of Rolls Royce.

Family have thanked the Funeral Director for organising the procession and staff at the Countess Mountbatten hospice for looking after Terry during his illness.
