Isaac Holden's Hearse House

  • Description

    "The hearse house was last used in 1930 for a burial at Ninebanks Church. This structure was purpose built for the Holden Hearse with space also to stable a horse. Isaac Holden raised the funds for the hearse from the sale of his own portrait and self penned poems. He raised the required sum of £25-10-O and according to the equivalent value in 2008 this be worth around £16,700." Photo by Roger Morris, 2007.
