I came across this today at Sheldon Parish church.
A funeral bier made in Sheldon around 1880

I think they were very common at one time, but now only seen in museums ( and on one occasion by myself as a table displaying cakes in a cafe at Moreton in Dorset)

At a church near us it's quite a walk from the road to the entrance,so funerals there use a collapsable one of those to carry the coffin ,you hear people looking on say, it's the last time they will go on the beer.

I can remember my family talking about my great grandparents being taken
on one of those wagons to be buried in Inkberrow in the early 1900s

Who would have thought that something made over the road to the church would still be there over 130 years later.
