J Canning, Client

“A very dear family friend of ours passed away on the 21 of February in Hove. As we live in the north of England we went on the website to search for a reputable funeral director in Hove. We chose Phillip Evans of Sussex Funeral Services. By the time we arrived in Hove all the arrangements for the funeral had been made to our satisfaction and any other help we needed was catered for to a very high standard. MR EVANS and his staff offered high quality professional care and assistance to our friend Sheila and ourselves throughout all the funeral arrangements. We would like to thank Philip and his caring staff for all their help and professional care and assistance. We would highly recommend Sussex Funeral Services in the event of losing a loved one. .”

Dermot, Client

“Thank you so much for conducting the funeral service on Monday, 20th July, for my mother, Grace. I was a little disappointed that there were so few of us at the service but we did manage to sing ‘Jerusalem’ quite strongly with the help of the organist! My sister, Mary, has driven back to Switzerland today to join the rest of her family, my daughter Sarah and children are now back in France and so there is only Alison and myself left in England! But I am back at work so hopefully normal service will resume in time! Once again, thank you for all your efforts and good luck for the future.”

Catherine Biggar and Mary Wilson, Clients

“Thank you very much for conducting the service for Mum. I’m back in Switzerland now, drove back on Friday and feeling a bit ‘stunned’! I believe you spoke to David (my husband) last week re: a pdf file of your eulogy. We haven’t received anything and wondered if you had sent it, Catherine has also sent you an e-mail of thanks which she wonders if you received. Once again, many thanks.”

Mary, clients

“Apologies for taking so long to be in touch. Things have ben rough as you can imagine. But you have been in our thoughts. Words cannot describe how appreciative we are of everything you did for us and our little girl. We have so much respect for the way for the way you handled our delicate situation. The service in particular was went so well in fact that many of our friends asked if you were a close family friend of ours, which just shows how much effort and compassion you put into everything from the start to finish. It must have been hard for you to decide to be the celebrant for the funeral, it being your first time.. Please know that we couldn’t have asked for a better person to help us say goodbye to our Angel Isabella. Thank you again and we hope to see you soon..”

Renato and Kate, Client

“I want to thank you so much for all you did Philip and for us the service was just as she wanted, and there wasn’t one thing that we could have done better, and the majority of that was down to you. I don’t think I managed to speak to you after, perhaps I did but it was a bit of a blur. So thank you again for all the time and thought you put into the service and to help us through a very sad time.”

Anne, Client

I cannot recommend Sussex Funeral Services more highly. They handled all of our requests with great sensitivity and professionalism. Everything was explained clearly and in sufficient detail. Different service/cost options were discussed, and at no point did we feel unnecessarily overcharged. Nothing was too much trouble, they are lovely people and gave us really wonderful service.

It is never an easy time, saying goodbye to a loved one. Philip was great, helping us every step of the way. We had a dignified and fitting send off for my Father in law George.

Truly an amazing funeral directors. Helped us bury my dad when it was so difficult for us. Coming from a culturally diverse background, it was nice to have people who worked around us to ensure my dad had the best, rather than have us to confirm to the service. Service is what we experienced from other funeral directors, therefore we moved to Sussex Funeral Services. I highly recommend Sussex Funeral Services for a personalised service which is people focus and they will help work within your budget.

Philip,I just wanted to thank you formally for all your help in designing and delivering Joyce's funeral. I didn't really know how to go about choosing a funeral director, and I'm so glad I chose you. You gave extremely good advice about the design of the service. Throughout the process you have been very helpful and gave me a lot of reassurance through your obvious good planning, professionalism and expertise. And you provided me with great people to work with - Lisa with the flowers and, in particular, the wonderful Jen.I'm sure you know that this has been the most difficult time of my life. I'm very pleased with the way that the funeral went - as were all the people there. So you have my gratitude for making it a success and for the fact that the process was more pain free than I would have dared to imagine.Warm regards,Ed Hagger
