The Coffin Works

The shelves and workbenches at Newman Brothers are full of original stock and tools of the trade.

With the original machinery working again, you can truly 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.

Taking you back to the 1960s

Travel back in time a few decades to experience how Newman Brothers operated during its heyday. You will enter a time capsule where the music of the 60s is piped into the building, mingled with the industrial sounds of a working factory.
