Category:Funeral carriages[edit]

Is there a difference between a Category:Funeral carriages and a Category:Horse-drawn hearses that I'm not seeing? Themightyquill (talk) 08:54, 19 April 2016 (UTC)

A funeral carriage could be drawn by oxen -> File:Bodleian Ms. Burm. a. 5 fol075-3.jpg. How about making Category:Horse-drawn hearses a subcategory of Category:Funeral carriages. And Category:Funeral carriages can be placed directly into Category:Hearses instead of the parent category Category:Funeral vehicles. - Takeaway (talk) 10:37, 19 April 2016 (UTC)
On second thought, Category:Funeral carriages should be changed into a redirect to Category:Hearses. - Takeaway (talk) 10:42, 19 April 2016 (UTC)
... and then there's trains, see Category:Funeral Carriage, Paranapiacaba ... @Themightyquill, Takeaway. Mike Peel (talk) 01:13, 9 April 2017 (UTC)

Good eye, Mike Peel. I'm starting to think Category:Funeral carriages is too ambiguous. Maybe we can redirect that to Category:Funeral vehicles with the following category tree.

What do you think? Takeaway? - Themightyquill (talk) 17:27, 9 April 2017 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Looks really good Themightyquill. Please do! (PS I'm sure that there are also a few "funeral ships" in Category:Ship burials.) - Takeaway (talk) 19:16, 9 April 2017 (UTC)
Looks like a sensible plan to me, @Themightyquill, although I'm not sure where individual train carriages used as funeral carriages fit in (under funeral trains, even if they don't have a train attached?). Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 08:56, 10 April 2017 (UTC)
For some reason, Category:Hearses wasn't tagged for this discussion. To be clear, I'm suggesting redirecting Category:Hearses to Category:Funeral vehicles. - Themightyquill (talk) 20:17, 26 September 2018 (UTC)
Okay, no opposition in a year. I'm closing. @Ruthven: Could you please help move Category:Hearses by decade (and its subcategories) to Category:Funeral vehicles by decade, Category:Hearses by color to Category:Funeral vehicles by color, and the sub-categories of Category:Funeral vehicles by country from "Hearses in X" to "Funeral vehicles in X".
Please note: There's no need to change all categories including the word "hearses" - Category:Motorcycle hearses‎, Category:Hearses (automobiles)‎, Category:Horse-drawn hearses‎ and their subcategories are fine. Thanks! I can check the categorization and templates when they're all moved. Thanks! - Themightyquill (talk) 09:06, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
Themightyquill I can do it. Shall we move also Category:Winton_hearse_in_the_Gilmore_Car_Museum or the word hearse is correct here? (sorry, I'm not a native English speaker) Ruthven (msg) 09:11, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
No, that category is fine the way it is. "Hearse" can mean many types of funeral vehicles, so it's not wrong in any of these cases, just ambiguous. Thanks! - Themightyquill (talk) 09:14, 5 September 2019 (UTC)

Changes made as proposed above. - Themightyquill (talk) 15:47, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
