The funeral procession of Mrs Gardener, of Medstead, showing the bearers wearing smocks. Mr Jeffries leads the mourners, behind the coffin is Mr Gardener. This type of funeral was unusual of its time but Mrs Gardener had wanted it to be in the ‘Old Style’. Mr Jeffrey was the local undertaker and lived at Jubilee cottage (demolished 2004). He had a workshop at the rear of the premises where the coffins were made
