|On the left is a bill for the funeral of Fanny Shortland, aged 84, which shows how different the cost of a funeral was in 1962. For just £42 it covered:-
'To making a stout wax-polished coffin with mouldings fitted to sides & top.
Three pairs of nickelled casket handles with breastplate mounted & inscribed. Inside furnishings, frillings & robe complete.
Opening of grave. Ministers & Sextons fees. Obituary notice in local press. Hearse & 2 cars at funeral. Attendance at funeral with bearers.
Under personal supervision throughout.'
