Explore a unique piece of history

The Coffin Works is a heritage attraction located on the edge of the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham. Our grade II* listed factory and its contents tells the story of Newman Brothers, Birmingham’s last coffin-furniture manufactory who operated from this Fleet Street premises for over 100 years. In 1998 the factory workers laid down their equipment and walked out of the building for the very last time, leaving everything behind.
