/Hove Funeral Directors

In the past, a “Pauper’s funeral” was a funeral paid for by the state, for those who either didn’t have enough money in their estate or family members willing to cover the costs of the burial arrangements. This was one of the earliest social welfare provisions in Britain, dating all the way back to Elizabethan [...]

An exceptional service; personalised, sincere, and everyone said it was the best funeral they had ever attended. Phil and Sallie researched thoroughly, and were involved in all the decision-making, to enable us to have the funeral we wanted. The result was a beautiful ceremony. Their warm and personal approach to mum's funeral helped the family beyond description.read more

Sallie and Phil were absolutely amazing and I can't even begin to express my gratitude for their professionalism, kindness, honesty, helpfulness, flexibility, compassion and for going the extra mile for us. They broke up their prices clearly, there were no hidden fees or surprises, there was none of that 'being charged for things you don't want' nonsense. They put the Orders of Service on the seats, they arranged lights for me, they helped me with the music, they communicated with me every step of the way, we even had some lovely chats too. All of this and they offer one of the cheapest prices. But we got everything we'd want; we probably got more than we'd have got from places charging a grand more. I can't praise them enough, thank them enough and recommend them any more highly. If I find myself needing to arrange another funeral in the area, I guarantee I'll go straight back to Sussex Funeral Services and be confident I'm in safe hands. At the worst time of my life, at my most vulnerable, they not only didn't take advantage, they were a great comfort and support. (Stephen Frost)read more

The funeral was highly personalised and nuanced with great sensitivity to our particular circumstance. An occasion which could have been daunting was made pleasant. All concerned felt the Service was apt and moving. In short, it could not have been done better.read more

Fab Funeral....Phil has managed two funerals for me and my family having sadly lost two dear brothers in the last 14 months. It was great working with Phil to get the funeral plans in place to fit with our budget and our musical requirements. Both of my brothers loved music of the 60s, 70s and 80s and at the last funeral we paid extra for a double time slot at the Crem and ensured that we tested the music volume with the staff at the Crem and it was totally brilliant on the day with back to back tracks. Phil is a nice guy and so easy to work with and his superb people skills made it all so relaxed for family and friends on the day of the funeral. Phil even recommended a superb florist who prepared the flowers for the coffin. I would highly recommend Phil's funeral services to anyone....Don’t think twice about who to talk to about your funeral arrangements, talk to Phil. Regards, Clive Martin.read more

From the moment we met Philip, the Funeral Director, he was warm, kind and very helpful. He gave advice with every aspect of the funeral. Philip also delivered the Eulogy of my Dad ( having previously spent 2 hrs with my family, gathering information about Dad's life). He really captured the essence of my Dad and told the story of his life in a warm hearted, natural way.  After the funeral, family and friends, commented, on what a lovely service it was. From start to finish Sussex Funeral Services treated us all with the utmost respect and all my family agree, that we would highly recommend them.read more

I sadly lost my mother recently. The home where she had been living recommended Sussex Funeral Services to me saying they would look after everything. This was a blessing as I live in France. Phil, Sallie and Bob were wonderful...trying to organise a funeral from a distance could have been difficult and emotionally exhausting - it wasn't. They were all kind, helpful, considerate and incredibly efficient with every aspect of the planning, paperwork and the smooth running of funeral itself. My family and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Phil and his amazing team. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.read more

When my brother met me to discuss our mum funeral he was sure he wanted to go with Sussex Funeral services, I said not to make that decision because they were by far the cheapest. He said he didn’t and that when he met them they genuinely cared about all aspects and provided the emotional support that would be needed at this hard time where as others perhaps didn’t. They showed that from the moment I spoke to them on the phone I felt at ease and the service offered on the day of the funeral exceeded any expectations.Please don’t hesitate to use these guys. They have a Facebook page full of reviews, Google and Yell is nothing but positive feedback and when spending a large amount of money or dealing with something as important as saying goodbye to a loved one you need full assurance you are safe with who you are using and this case you’re far more then safe. It all comes down to personally liking someone sometimes and Phillip you should be proud of the successful business you have as I would recommend you to anyone and from what I can see so would many hundreds of other customers. Thank you.read more
