The present owner Robert Edmond has been in the business for over 30 years, taking over from his father James who retired in 2003. The funeral side of the business started with the joiners making solid coffins for their customers. The last solid wood coffin we made was in 1983, with the advent of mass production it was more cost effective to buy them in, especially with the choice that is available now. We use modern hearse and limousines and can provide a wide selection of coffins and caskets. These include low cost cardboard, foil, veneered wood, solid wood, natural willow, sea grass, bamboo or wool coffins or caskets.
