Remembering the Pulman brothers lost in the Great War

Lister Lane Headstones

On Saturday 29th April at 12:30pm, Lister Lane Cemetery will be hosting a Spring Open Day, commemorating those lost in the Great War, including tours starting at 1:00pm.

Lister Lane Cemetery is the final resting place of multiple generations of the Pulman family, including our company’s founder Abram Pulman (1794-1863).

The Pulman family lost two men during The Great War – brothers Cuthbert and John Edgar Pulman, who were great-grandsons of Abram Pulman. While their bodies were never found, Cuthbert and John Edgar Pulman’s names are commemorated on gravestones in Lister Lane Cemetery, and are adorned with Great War crosses which can be viewed during the Spring Open Day event.

A Pulman family headstone listing four generations of Pulmans that had sadly fallen on its face was re-erected last year thanks to a local stonemason we commissioned in an effort to honour the founding family of Pulman Steel.

We encourage you all to join us in visiting Lister Lane Cemetery on Saturday April 29th for the Spring Open Day to commemorate those who gave their lives in the Great War.

Make sure your summer construction deadlines are met

Steel construction

Spring is finally here, and it’s really starting to feel like it too! With this warming weather, construction seems to jump into overdrive. All those projects that have been put off over winter are beginning to get the green light, and with the rush of new construction projects comes a rush of pressing deadlines. Those of you who work in construction know there are enough delays and setbacks on projects without having to wait on deliveries, so why not choose a steel supplier with a proven track record for fast turnaround and on time deliveries?

Pulman Steel has been in the steel business since 1830, and during this time we have developed a reputation for being someone our customers can count on to deliver the right product on time, every time.

So when you use Pulmans as your steel supplier, you can be sure that we’ll never delay your project deadlines!
