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 directors have 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 in Bridgwater, Daimler, Princess, Rover and Jaguar hearse’s with 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 side car.

H Biffen offer funeral arrangements that are bespoke, traditional and everything in between with expert guidance. H Biffen believe everyone is different and a funeral should reflect who they are and how much they are loved and we are here every step of the way for that journey. 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.

H Biffen is open Monday to Thursday, 9am to 5pm, and Fridays until 4.30pm. The home is fully accessible, with a 24-hour service when your loved one passes away. The funeral home has its own non-denominational chapel of rest where you can say goodbye to your loved one in peace with a lounge next to the chapel for you to catch your breath. The chapel is dedicated to Harold Wilkins, a member of staff who worked for the funeral home for many years.

H Biffen & Sons Ltd is a member of the National Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors.

    Sarah and her team at H Biffen & Sons Ltd did us proud when they organised the funeral of our late Mum, Sheila Hutchinson who sadly passed away on 15 October 2020. Whilst remaining extremely professional from the start of our dealings with her, Sarah has a warmth and compassion that leaves you feeling very comfortable and at ease. Nothing is too much trouble and everything is dealt with professionally and efficiently. We would have no hesitation in recommending H Biffen & Sons Ltd to anyone who is looking for a professional and compassionate funeral director. Julie, Mike, Dave and Jo

  • 5 Kerry Gorvin 7th Aug 2020

    The passing and loss of our dad was made slightly more bearable by the thoughtful service provided by Biffens. Sarah was understanding and considerate and listened to our wishes and memories in order to help prepare a service that celebrated our dad’s life. It was a very hard day but Biffens helped to make it slightly less so. Many thanks to Sarah and her team  X 

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers. You can find out what happens at a funeral and compare funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

What are disbursements?

Disbursements are additional costs for a funeral service that are paid to third-parties, such as florists, celebrants and burial fees. The funeral director will usually charge you for them and then pay the suppliers themselves.

How can I get help with funeral costs?

If the cost of a funeral is not covered by a prepaid funeral plan, or the estate of the person who has died, you may be able to get financial help from the government’s Bereavement Support Payment or from War Disablement Pensions, charitable funds or budgeting loans.
