A&C Tadman, Funeral Directors
Originally conceived from the love of horses of the great-great-grandfather of one of the current directors of the company, Tim Tadman. Thomas Tadman was a horse trader working from his home in Bale in Norfolk. He imported Friesian horses from Belgium, trained them to pull a glass hearse and then sold them to the Funeral Trade, mainly in the London Area. He, and his wife Dorcas, moved to Stepney, East London in 1849, and slowly built a thriving funeral business. After their deaths, their son Alfred William and wife Annie continued to run the business successfully. He became a well known personality in the East End of London, not only as a Funeral Director, but also for his knowledge of Belgian Black Horses, which are the breed still used for Horse Drawn Funerals.
