Subscriptions were raised in 1895 for the construction of a tenement for the parish funeral car. Money was also donated by the Band of Hope and the funds were further augmented by the proceeds of a concert. From the receipts and expenditure account published at this time it appears a new funeral car was also purchased. From 1896 the building was vested in the Parish Council. The original cast-iron gates have been lost. The tenement was restored c.1980. In 1995 to mark its centenary it was again restored by the Community Council. It still houses the car.


A single-room building about 3 m by 4 m, with its gable and doors facing S to the village street. Stone walls, rendered and painted. Slate roof with restored bargeboards and finial. Boarded double doors at front with small glazed panels, under a slightly pointed segmental brick arch. A small plaque in the gable records that the building was funded by voluntary contributions.
