Constructed circa 1800 by Parker, Hastings and used at Witnesham Parish
Church in Suffolk until the early 1980s. The construction of this funeral
bier is a little unusual in that the top can be rotated so that the coffin
may be removed at right angles to the pathway; towards the church, perhaps.
Donated to the Museum in 1982.
