Ingall, Parsons, Clive & Co. Ltd.

Ingall, Parsons, Clive & Co. Ltd. was a brassfounder and coffin manufacturer and was regarded as a leading funeral supply company in the UK in the 20th century. The business was established in Birmingham in 1888 following the amalgamation of fifteen companies in the city.

In 1928, Ingall's had 600 employees and was the largest firm in the coffin trade, with branches in most of the larger cities in the UK. The company is now dissolved but it seems to have traded until at least the early 1980s.
