Window on the War: Business produces moving WW1 tribute

A SHAW funeral business has been praised for helping to commemorate the end of the First World War.

An eye-catching display at Jason Worsnip Family Funeral Service has been attracting plenty of positive attention as the countdown continues to Remembrance Sunday.

Both windows of the double fronted premises on Milnrow Road have been filled with poppy wreaths and voiles plus WW1 memorabilia including photographs.

A number of items have been donated by the Oldham branch of the Royal British Legion while most have been sourced by director Nigel Worsnip.

“I mentioned to Jason we should do something to commemorate the end of the First World War,” explained Nigel. “He thought it was a great idea.

“They are really big windows and so there was plenty of scope to put together a really good display.

“There has been a great reaction which makes it all the more worthwhile.

“Lots of people have walked past and given us the thumbs up through the window. Or they have come in and said how nice the display looks.” 

Worsnips’ moving window dressing will remain in place for a week after Remembrance Sunday on November 11.

“As long as it is fitting and appropriate we will now certainly look to different displays in the future,” added Nigel who teamed up with brother Jason to open the business back in January 2018.

“It is going well and we are on target with our projections,” he explained. “We pride ourselves on the family touch and that has been appreciated.”
