19th century Grantham funeral bier will remain in town after restoration
A local man has brought an original 19th century funeral bier back to life.
Peter Moles, managing director of Classical Biers, of Stoke Rochford, purchased the bier from Robert Holland Funeral Directors, who themselves acquired it around five years ago, and set about restoring it.
Not only is the bier more than 125 years old, it has a very local connection in that it was orginally manufactured in 1895 by R. W. Anderson and Son, of St Peter's Hill.
