M. Sillifant & Sons was established in 1906 by Harry Bidgood, who maintained it until 1948. It was then bought by the Sillifant family who have, in accordance with Mr. Bidgood's request, continued to run the business as an independent family concern. Following on from Bernard Sillifant, Martin and Marc, the 3rd and 4th generations of the family to carry on the business, are a father and son team with over 45 years experience within the funeral profession. The premises, which consist of Office, Chapels of Rest, Garages and Workshops, are situated near the City Centre, and provide an informal environment in which to discuss and finalise any funeral arrangements. Should anyone prefer these discussions to take place in the privacy of their own home, we are only too pleased to accommodate their wishes. We endeavour, under all circumstances, to provide full and correct information about all the services that are available to you. Our aims are to listen to you, treat you with respect and courtesy in an effort to meet your personal needs, and ensure that you are completely satisfied with the quality of service that we are able to provide. Our offices and Chapels of Rest are available Monday to Friday 8.30am – 4.30pm by appointment. Evening and weekend appointments must be made in office hours. Our professional advice is freely available on any problems which may comfort you. These include questions concerning fees, costings, distance funerals, (both home and overseas), legal requirements, documentation, differing religious practices, non-religious ceremonies, transport, press announcements, printing, catering, floral tributes, recording and forwarding of donations, assistance with funeral costs and any other personal concerns or requirements that you may have.

Very helpful, sympathetic and unobtrusive. They guide you through the process and listen to your needs. They have taken care of two of my relatives now and I would recommend them.
