It was in the late 1890’s that Henry J Wright came to Great Missenden from New Mill, Tring, to work on the restoration of the Parish Church and the building of the front porch and boiler house at the Church. Following the completion of this work he remained in Great Missenden setting up in business in 1900 or 1901 as a general builder, working from premises in Church Street.
Early records show that in 1902 he was already working as a builder and decorator, sanitary engineer and undertaker, or funeral furnisher.
Henry, or Harry as he was known, was soon joined by his brother Arthur, some fifteen years his junior. Together they traded as H J & A Wright and in 1921 the business was incorporated into a Limited Company.
Arthur is the great-grandfather of the current Directors.
In 2000 Philip was joined in the business by his son Tim and in 2003 by his son-in-law Jim Smith who are now responsible for running the business.
Tim Wright holds a BSC in Building Management and a Diploma in Funeral Directing.
