William Charles Burt 1809-1873 was a cabinet maker, upholsterer, undertaker, ayctioneer and appraiser of 9 The Strand, Tormohan (old Torquay). In 1851 he emplyed 13 men and 3 apprentices. Were any photos taken of this old business? It must have stretched over quite a site. My multiple great grandfather was employed there for numerous years.
