Molley Hulbert 21st Jun 2022

This was the second time going with Biffens. They were very helpful, answered all my questions and guided me all the way. Being 24 and organising a funeral isn’t easy, but Sarah kept me calm the whole time. The team were great, even there for a shoulder to cry on. Thanks for your help guys!

About Us

H Biffen & Sons Ltd Family Funeral Directors in Bridgwater, Somerset were established in 1920 by Harry Biffen, with £100 borrowed from his Uncle. H Biffen, now a 4th generation family funeral director, has a goal to provide families with a dignified and caring service at a fair value.

The company has always been in the heart of Bridgwater and covers the surrounding areas. They own one of the largest British fleets of Daimler, Princess, Rover and Jaguar hearses and limousines - some of which have been lovingly restored over the years since Harry Biffen first founded the business. Alternative hearses can be brought in, for example horse and carriage to motorbike and sidecar.

H Biffen & Sons offer funeral arrangements that are bespoke, traditional and everything in between with expert guidance. The dedicated team know that everyone is different and a funeral should reflect who they are and how much they are loved and they will guide you every step of the way. Father and Daughter team John and Sarah, alongside their extended family of professional, compassionate staff, are proud to care for your loved one and help you with every step of arranging a funeral.

  • 5 Esther Hollick 29th May 2022

    I have never had to arrange a funeral before. But if I had to do it again I would choose biffens every time.  From the very first moment we walked into the door we were treated with respect and we were listened to.  Nothing was too much trouble and I felt like I was guided every step of the way. We told them what we wanted and they just carried it out with no problems. It was exactly what we wanted for mum.  The funeral was professional, dignified, personal and quite frankly perfect.  I could not recommend them enough.  Thanks for everything. She would have loved it.

  • 5 Colin Brown 17th May 2022

    We have used the facilities and expert advice of Biffiins funeral services for several years in our family. For this reason we chose to use them for my wife’s funeral on this occasion. Once again the care and attention to detail was was first class , not only the presentation but the wonderful support and sympathetic treatment we were shown throughout our association. Grief is a hard thing to bear at any time but to be shown such understanding and reverance throughout wasmuch appreciated.   Thank you all the staff.  Colin Brown
