So, clearing out some old files this week and found this lovely old photo. I think that this is a photo of my Grandad bearing at a funeral in the 1930's. As a third generation Funeral Director it's great to have this record. It's recognised throughout the trade that both my Grandads were well known Funeral Directors. One in Westminster and one in and around the Clapham area in South West London.
In addition my parents were Funeral Directors in Wandsworth, (Mears & Cotterill Funeral Directors), until they sold a couple of years ago.
Although I never worked for any of my relatives I'm sure being a Funeral Director must be in my blood!
