Funeral business plan for former Wisbech pub
The diggers have moved into the site of a former Wisbech pub, which is set to become a funeral home.
Work is underway to re-develop the old Royal Standard pub on Elm High Road, shown above.
The building, which is being partially demolished, has been bought by Central England Co-Operative, who intend to use it as a branch of its funeral business.
The site will replace the company’s current premises in the town, in Norwich Road and is set to open later this year.
A company statement said: “All staff based at the Norwich Road funeral home will move to the new Elm Road funeral home.
“The funeral home will offer a 24-hour service, seven days a week.
“In addition to arranging funerals, the Funeralcare team will also offer advice on floral tributes, monumental masonry, funeral stationery, pre-paid funeral plans and probate advice.”
