Originally the business operated with a horse drawn coach and the first car to be used was purchased around 1916, the firm claimed the distinction of having introduced the first motor hearse in New South Wales. Piddingtons introduced the first funeral chapel to Armidale NSW in 1932. It was complete with seating accommodation, pulpit and organ amplification system, unique to the north at that time. Succeeding George William Piddington who founded the firm in 1899 came his two sons Bill and Allan. Bill's sons Lloyd and Max entered the business in the 1940's and Lloyd's three sons, Allan, Graham and Ron also joined the firm. After 1991, Allan, Ron and Lloyd have continued to run the business, with Lloyd retiring in 1996 and Sam, Ron’s eldest son starting in 2008.

After five generations Piddingtons is a true family tradition. Piddingtons continues to serve the community as Funeral Directors providing a dedicated level of care when families and loved ones need it most.
