Sussex Funeral Services in Cottenden Will Explain All Your Options

The ‘No Fuss’, direct cremation or direct to grave burial options can help those in need. We can help those who may need to consider the implications of funeral cost and who wish to opt out of having a large funeral. Our sensitive staff will gladly support you in your personal wishes throughout this time, while upholding dignity and discretion, throughout. Support and Compassion, Guaranteed While we offer a full range of traditional services, these are also fully outlined in terms of cost, split into three parts: Our Professional Service charge, the Coffin and the Disbursements or Third party costs.

Our experienced funeral director, Philip, is devoted in this approach, offering these simplistic packages as standard to help those who require guidance; we wish to help those who would really prefer a a private funeral, those with financial worries, or those who need to grieve in a way they find most natural for them Whatever your reasons, we totally understand that a large funeral service is not for everyone and those suffering with the sudden loss of a loved one should not feel under pressure to go through with a service that isn’t right for them. We want to advertise affordable and private funeral options so that we can cater for your distinct wishes from the outset.

The ‘No Fuss’ direct cremation and direct to grave packages we offer can help those families in need, who may need to carefully consider the implications of a funeral cost or indeed, for whatever reason, wish not to have a large funeral. This may be for a number of reasons, and our sensitive staff can adhere to your wishes with utmost discretion and sensitivity.

Is the “No Fuss” right for you?

For whatever the reason, some families and individuals who are responsible for organising a funeral for a lost loved one, may wish not to have a ceremony associated with a larger funeral.

We are aware that many other funeral directors do not openly advertise a direct funeral as an option, yet it is a requirement.

Omitting the options available to a person or family already vulnerable and emotionally tested is, to us, exploitative and could mean, in some cases, being taken advantage of. Ethically we find this lack of transparency uncomfortable, as the trauma of losing someone is difficult enough without this type of exploitative marketing, omitting information to those at a time when they really need help the most.

Personalized, Traditional or Non-Religious Packages

A growing number of our clients wish to have an alternative funeral arrangement. We offer traditional and non-religious, humanist and direct burial or cremation services to suit your wishes.

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.

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
