Newman Brothers at the Coffin Works, Birmingham
The Coffin Works isn’t quite what you’d might expect, and we promise the surprises will be pleasant ones! Entering the factory is like stepping back in time to the heyday of Newman Brothers in the 1960s, the shelves and workbenches at Newman Brothers are full of original stock and tools of the trade. With the original machinery working again, you can truly experience how this old Jewellery Quarter firm once operated on a day-to-day basis, producing some of the world’s finest coffin furniture, including the fittings for the funerals of Churchill, Chamberlain and the Queen Mother.
