150th Anniversary for SAIF Member S Stibbards & Sons Family Funeral DirectorsNovember 16, 2017 // No Comments
SAIF Member S Stibbards & Sons Family Funeral Directors in Essex celebrated their 150th anniversary this summer. Samuel Stibbard, the company’s founder, established S Stibbards & Sons Ltd Funeral Directors in 1867. In 1925, David and Albert, the sons of Samuel’s wife Ann, took over the company. The brothers began the expansion of the business, appointing trusted agents in the local community to arrange funerals on the company’s behalf. Since then much has changed in the company’s structure, but S Stibbards & Sons is still owned and run by direct descendants of Samuel Stibbard. They now have five branches: the head office in Hadleigh, Leigh-on-Sea, Canvey Island, Shoeburyness and Hockley.
