Hi, just wondered if there is historical information about this company. I am looking for their 1950's crematorium reoords and wondered if there are relatives connected to company that may still retain this.

Hi There,

I'm pretty sure that all cremations in the 50s were performed by Surrey and Sussex Crematorium; they are on the Balcome Road just south of Horley. Hope this helps.

My grandfather bought the business of Hammonds in the 1890s. With regard to the funeral side of the business all cremation records would be held by the crematoria. South London was used prior to Surrey and Sussex opening. As I joined the business in 1958 on the furnishing side I know very little about the undertaking part. Jan Hutsebaut's purchase in Belgium is interesting in that it was probably a piece prior to WW2 as I cannot recollect labels on the furniture sold in my time. By the mid 60s the stock was entirely modern design much of it Scandinavian and Italian plus some very good British furnishings. I hope that helps.

Hi we have just bought a couple pieces of furniture which have the company sticker on the back. As I am always interested in the history of these old items, I was wondering when they ceased trading and whether they made their own furniture or sold new or second hand. Might be useful for me to date and confirm or not the origin of the pieces. . Thank you

Where in Reigate was the Northover and Son funeral shop situated in Reigate and did it just close or was it taken over by another company. I see the memorial gardens was taken over by Reigate and Banstead council in 1978 . I lived in the area until early 60s thank you Kevin Moore

I remember that when a furniture shop, all their vehicles had the number 800 in the registrations! One of my friends father worked there.
