We had an almost similar hearse before:
/vehicle_19134-Austin-20.html

If the engine capacity is close to the actual/original capacity this one here must be an Austin 16 (2249cc 6 cylinder).

The hearse shown above is certainly a 1933 Austin 20/6, or 16/6. The Hearse shown in Alexander's pictures is of a 1927 Austin 20/4 (Reg 92 FLU) This vehicle was the first motorised hearse in use on the Isle of Mann, and was saved for preservation by a matter of minutes as the scrapman was about to smash it up with an axe when it was spotted. This vehicle appeared as the hearse in the T/V series 'In Loving Memory'. One lasting memory I have of this vehicle is being asked to enter the London to Brighton run (for commercial vehicles) as part of a funeral cortage. Half way down to Brighton I had the misfortune to run into the back of the 'Mourning' car which was just in front of me, causing some minor damage to headlamp and front wing. However worse was to come when the organisers of the run took a dim view of our 'portrayal' and banned us from entering again! 92 FLU is still around, but has since been re-registered, and would need a lot of work done to it if it was ever to appear in films again.
Cheers for now.

Oh dear, This is 'HYM', not 'FLU' that was used in the TV series 'In Loving Memory'. Bodywork is unknown but the vehicle started life in Ireland where it may have received its horsedrawn body..it was fully restored ( too much) in 1994 by its current owners T Cribbs of London!! Certainly not a Woodall body again Animatronixx!!!!
