Paul’s military might

Funeral bier

Paul Capper of Eastleigh’s Independent Funeral Directors has officially dedicated a new custom-built funeral bier made specifically for the coffins of military veterans.

The bier, which is a traditional stand for a coffin to be placed on or carried on to the grave, is one of only two of its kind in the UK.

It was donated and manufactured by Berkshire-based A R Twigg & Son Ltd, in support of the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

Having been produced to the exacting standards of Paul and his team, the bier will allow the coffins of military veterans to rest upon the flag of the country they have proudly served and will take centre stage during funeral services for military veterans and families across Eastleigh and Hampshire.
