In 1931, Joseph Henry Grindall purchased the funeral business from his brother-in-law Vivian Wellings. Soon after the Second World War ended, Joseph’s sons Jabez and Vivian joined him, and it became the family business J H Grindall & Sons, which was located in the High Street, Wem.
Joseph Henry Grindall passed away in 1973 and Jabez and Vivian continued to run the business until 1988 when Mr Alan Painter of Frank Painter & Sons bought the business from them. Vivian continued to run the office for a number of years until he retired and the office has since relocated to Aston Street, where in honour of its history it now bears the name Grindall's Of Wem.
Vivian Grindall passed away in 2005 and Jabez Grindall in 2010.
