Shroud Manufacturers Ltd. were part of W.L. Doggart & Son, who were wholesale merchants and manufacturers to funeral undertakers. Shroud Manufacturers Ltd. operated from their warehouse on James Street in Belfast.

Joseph Doggart was a director at the Belfast company as well as at Newman Brothers. It’s therefore no surprise that the two companies worked closely with each other. Newman Brothers supplied ‘Shroud Manufacturers Ltd’ with shrouds and ‘shirts’. This document provides an insight into the transactions between the two companies and the high standards that were demanded.
