St Michael's Church, Edvin Ralph (Funeral Bier)

Recent Photograph of St Michael's Church (Funeral Bier) (Edvin Ralph)

Edvin Ralph's original funeral bier was solid oak, and very heavy to carry shoulder-high, even without a coffin, but in 1930 it was decided a wheeled one was called for, and the above was purchased at a cost of £250. Mr Eddie POWELL of Pound Farm was the first to be carried on it, the last being was Mr Leonard POWELL in 1989.
