In 1962 my grandparents Honess and Fay and my father Buffy, started their own funeral business. With a £1,000 loan from a close family friend, Parker King, they purchased this 1950 Single Spinner Ford hearse from Graham Watkins funeral directors in Narrandera, NSW.They replaced the Ford five years later with a brand new 1967 Chevrolet Impala.This photograph was taken during my first few months of work in 1977.
