James Pidgeon & Son Ltd

Business Overview
The company was established in Grangetown by James Pidgeon in 1920, initially as a private care hire firm, during which period they conveyed many celebrities of the times, including King George V (who gave a 10 shilling tip to his driver who happened to be James Pidgeon). Other customers included the American newspaper magnate, William Randolph Hurst, who owned St Donat’s Castle, and Joseph Kennedy, father of President John F Kennedy. Pidgeons also supplied cars for wedding hire and charabangs (large open coach-type vehicles) for works outings, Whitsun treats etc.
Pidgeons owned the first motor hearse in Cardiff, which was hired out to undertaking businesses. It was decided by the family at that time that under-taking would be a natural extension to the hire business and during the early 30s Pidgeons conducted their first funeral service.
