Business Overview
Clement McGough was one of seven children born to William & Anne, two of whom sadly died young, one as a baby, and a sister at 21 years of age. Clement would eventually marry Ethel Lawrence and together they would have six children of their own, three sons and three daughters: Margaret, Lawrence, Joan, Paul, David (Auxiliary Bishop of Birmingham) and Veronica.
Many long-established firms of funeral directors trace their origins back to joiners who were frequently called upon to manufacture coffins, and who gradually extended their role. McGough’s is no exception. Initially a brick maker, Clement later moved to H & R Johnson Limited, where he served his apprenticeship in order to become a full time factory joiner. During the Second World War he was a volunteer in the fire service.
Clement started the funeral business when FR. Ryan, a local Roman Catholic priest who asked him whilst he was helping build the Sacred Heart Church in Tunstall, if he would make a coffin for a family who could not afford a funeral. Clement went further; in addition to making the coffin, he dressed up his father’s horse and dray and organised the whole event.
