Magoun-Biggins Funeral Home is an independent, family owned and operated funeral home located on the South Shore of Massachusetts. Our facilities are situated in a stately Victorian Mansion that was built in 1876, and has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Founded in 1956 by Wendell T. Magoun, our firm has taken great pride in providing personal service to the community in all aspects of care giving. Wendell's son Robert W. Magoun continued this legacy of family service for over thirty-five years.

Currently the firm is owned and operated by Robert J. Biggins ,his family and a dedicated staff of caregivers. They continue the legacy and bring a vision for the future to expand and improve the available resources of care and compassion. Together they strive to assist each and every family that they serve to "Celebrate the Dignity of Life".

After a thorough, independent examination of our record of service, practices and facilities, our firm has been designated for affiliation with Selected Independent Funeral Homes. We are the only firm in our community to receive this distinction.

As an SIFH member, we are pledged to strict adherence to the high standards to which members are dedicated. Our responsibilities to each family we serve will be in keeping with the SIFH's nationally known Code of Good Funeral Practice.

The Code of Good Funeral Practice
Selected Independent Funeral Homes

As funeral directors, our calling imposes upon us special responsibilities to those we serve and to the public at large. An important obligation is to provide information so that everyone can make knowledgeable decisions about funerals and funeral directors.

In acceptance of our responsibilities, and as a condition of our membership in Selected Independent Funeral Homes, we affirm the following standards of good funeral practice and hereby pledge:

  • To provide the public with information about funerals, including prices, and about the functions, services and responsibilities of funeral directors.
  • To afford a continuing opportunity to all persons to discuss or arrange funerals in advance.
  • To make funerals available in as wide a range or price categories as necessary to meet the needs of all segments of the community, and affirmatively to extend to everyone the right of inspecting and freely considering all of them.
  • To quote conspicuously in writing the charges for every funeral offered and to identify clearly the services, facilities, equipment and merchandise included in such quotations.
  • To furnish each family at the time funeral arrangements are made, a written memorandum of charges and to make no additional charge without the approval of the purchaser.
  • To make no representation, written or oral, which may be false or misleading, and to apply a standard of honesty in all dealings.
  • To respect all faiths, creeds and customs, and to give full effect to the role of the clergy.
  • To maintain a qualified and competent staff, complete facilities and suitable equipment required for comprehensive funeral service.
  • To assure those we serve the right of personal choice and decision in making funeral arrangements.
  • To be responsive to the needs of the poor, serving them within their means.
  • To comply fully with the requirements of the FTC Trade Regulation Rule on funeral practices .

We pledge to conduct ourselves in every way and at all times in such a manner as to deserve the public trust, and to place a copy of this Code of Good Funeral Practice in the possession of a representative of all parties with whom we arrange funerals.
