'Life in a Black Suit' by local undertaker Paul King

Wednesday 07 February 2018
20:00 to 22:00


‘Life in a Black Suit’ is the title that local undertaker Paul King has chosen for a talk he is giving to the next meeting of the South Woodham Ferrers Local History Society. Founded in 1990 Paul J King Funeral Directors, located in Guild Way, has been at the heart of the community in South Woodham Ferrers for over 25 years and during that time they have demonstrated a strong commitment to the local community – most recently shown by their generous sponsorship of a new visitor guide for St Mary’s Church in Woodham Ferrers. Visitors to local classic car events such as those at Maldon and Steeple, which Paul King often supports, cannot fail to be impressed - and possibly surprised - by the range of historic vehicles that Paul has at his disposal.


The life of a funeral director is a subject matter something out of the ordinary as far as the Local History Society is concerned but the evening is bound to provide much food for thought as Paul shares some of the experiences and unpredicatable incidents that have occured when engaged in this vital and demanding line of work. With an ever-expanding spread in Essex with offices now covering Hullbridge, Braintree, Maldon and Burnham-on-Crouch as well as Chelmsford, Paul King Funeral Directors are clearly now writing their own place in history as a local success story. It should prove to be an interesting and enlightening evening.


The talk ‘Life in a Black Suit’ will take place on Wednesday 7th February at Champions Manor Hall, Hullbridge Road CM3 5LJ commencing at 8.00 pm.. Visitors will be very welcome (admission £3) and no booking is necessary; alternatively visitors may join the Society when they arrive - at the reduced (half-year) rate of £6 which gives admission to all four of the Society’s remaining monthly meetings from now until May 2018. Any enquiries please telephone 01245 321518.
