About Sussex Funeral Services Portslade

An independent funeral directors and undertakers serving the town of Portslade, Sussex Funeral Services is owned and managed by Philip Evans and his partner, Sallie Clark. Philip has many years of experience as an undertaker and funeral celebrant, and has devoted himself to years of training in order to be able to provide sensitive, compassionate and professional undertaking services. Philip cares for the deceased with the utmost respect and professionalism, and provides loved ones and their families with supportive guidance during this challenging time. He is also able to arrange all of the practical aspects of the ceremony, from choosing the type the funeral, to the venue, to arranging the finer details that offer a personalised touch.

Philip is a fully-trained and highly-experienced independent funeral celebrant (also known as a humanist or civil celebrant) and is a full member of the Fellowship of Professional Celebrants. His extensive training enables him to provide compassionate and sensitive civil funeral services for families who wish for an alternative to the traditional religious funeral.

Such training has deepened Philip’s understanding of how loved ones process grief and loss. This has enabled Philip to better meet the needs of the bereaved and provide them with the care and support that they need during this difficult time.
