The shelves and workbenches at the Newman Brothers factory are full of original stock and tools of the trade. With the original machinery working again, you can 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 Joseph Chamberlain, Winston Churchill and the Queen Mother. Travel back in time to experience how the factory operated during its heyday, the characters who formed the business and the working methods they used.
