Funeral Directors in Exeter
19-20 Holloway Street
This funeral directors business 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. Bernard and Martin Sillifant, the 2nd and 3rd generations of the family to carry on the business, are a father and son team, with over 87 years of combined experience within the funeral profession.
