Bradford undertaker David Birch, who died last weekend aged 74, will be borne into church by six undertakers at his funeral tomorrow.
It’s a touching tribute to a man who was described as a ‘perfectionist’. The Bradford Telegraph and Argus adds:
Although Mr Birch had retired in his sixties, he never let go of the business that celebrated its centenary in 2003 and was started by his grandfather Herbert Henry. “He kept a watchful eye over everything. He couldn’t let go. It had been his life forever,” said Mrs Birch.
