Restoration of Coffin Fittings Works in Birmingham

14 September 2013,

Birmingham Conservation Trust are working on a project to restore Newman Brothers Coffin Fittings Works in Fleet Street.

This was a working building for over 100 years until it closed in 1999. It is typical of the type of building that sprung up in the Jewellery Quarter of Birmingham in the late 19th Century. Newman Brothers specialised in producing high quality coffin fittings in solid brass and later moulded resin. They also made shrouds and coffin linings.
