    need for more accurate clocks grew Clements observed that making the pendulum longer improved the clock s accuracy Eventually he put a long pendulum mechanism into a long case so the clock could be stood on the floor The concept was adopted by other makers and generally these early clocks cases were plain wooded boxes with a wood door These tall wood containers resembled a coffin in many people s eyes and coffin clock is what they began to call them rather than long case clocks So why is it called a Grandfather Clock In 1876 Henry Clay Work stayed at the George Hotel in County Durham England where he found an old Long Case clock that no longer worked When Henry asked about the clock he was told that it had always kept perfect time which in an era when clocks were not so accurate as today was quite unusual However when one of the brothers who owned the hotel died the clock started losing time and could not be fixed It then stopped altogether when the second brother died aged ninety and it was never repaired Inspired by the story Henry wrote a song based on it which became hugely popular In the song he referred to the long case clock as Grandfather s Clock and after that people began calling all long case clocks grandfather clocks Lyrics The lyrics to Grandfather s Clock by Henry Clay Work can be found on the Grandmother Clocks page of this site Grandmother Clocks design and craftsmanship A selection of smaller Grandmother Clocks under 6ft 6inch 78 1 83m from BilliB the clock specialists floor clock ranges These classic and contemopary designed long case clocks are built by some of the leading clock manufacturers in Europe an accumulation of centurys of
