S. Webb, Funeral Undertaker and Carriage Master, New Central Mews and Taxi Garage, Upper High Street, Wednesbury, and 41 King Street, Darlaston
Mr Sidney Webb is well known as an undertaker throughout much of South Staffordshire. The business, which is one of the best organised and most popular, was founded in the mid 1890s, and moved to Upper High Street around 1900. The premises is very extensive for our time, and has a showroom at the front, and a large mews and taxi garage at the rear.
Sidney Webb owns some first class horse-drawn hearses, a motor hearse, and a good number of new and excellently upholstered horse-drawn funeral carriages. He carries out funerals in their entirety, in any part of the district, and has gained a reputation for moderate charges and carefully planned arrangements.
He runs his taxi garage on up-to-date lines, and owns a number of well appointed cars for hire, both during the day, and at night.
