New Funeral Transport

New Funeral Transport

11th September 2014

This bier is believed to have been originally supplied new to Marshfield Church and cemetery in 1890 and was then passed on from the village to Bristol Museum around 1938. In the restructure of the museum in 2000 it was surplus to their core collection, sadly only keeping items ‘made in Bristol’. Wishing to see it returned to its original place of manufacture it was then passed on to a private collector. Again in the quest for storage space, it was looking for a new home when it was brought to the attention of Bewley & Merrett Funeral Directors. With the help of the team members we have restored it so it can be used once again.

Thanks to Tim from Timothy Slade sign writing for beautifully painting our name and logo onto the headboard.
