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.
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.
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.
Our price lists are purposefully designed with clarity and sensitivity to your personal circumstances. We are able to offer the most affordable and suitable options to help ease the extra strains associated in this testing and emotional time.
Sussex Funeral Services take pride in their transparent and clear funeral service. Offering support in your most important time of need, we hope that our openness will help ease the strain in this difficult time.
Our funeral director, Philip, wishes to offer a funeral service that demonstrates integrity and compassion, every step of the way, as Sussex Funeral Services is built on a code of compassionate care and integrity.
As an experienced funeral directors, we offer a bespoke service that ensures all our clients are aware of their options Our direct funeral options in burial and cremation are simple and dignified, giving you and your family a more appropriate and affordable option. The heart-breaking loss of a loved one, whether a direct family member, child, friend or spouse can create enormous, emotional upheaval and in practical terms, additional financial strain. Our team in Cottenden are experienced, sensitive, and aware of how hard arranging a funeral can be for a family or an individual.
In turn, we know that we are able to offer a better service providing full transparency when you need it most, and we are very proud to offer lower cost, direct burial and cremation options to help you in this incredibly difficult time.
Our clients’ comments are of much importance to us. We’d like to share them with you.
