Our funeral director, Philip wishes to offer an lower cost arrangements for those who are in need of more simple possibilities and our direct funeral packages may suit those who need time to grieve privately, or in a manner they find most suitable for their circumstance or situation.

By advertising our more affordable options, we can ensure burial or cremation with respect and dignity.
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.
Sussex Funeral Services know that, in many cases, a traditional funeral is not always the most suitable option for a lost loved one or the family left behind and for whatever the reason, a direct burial or cremation would suit those with a smaller family or those worried about the financial implications of a funeral.
Each and every situation is different and we wish to offer a fully transparent set of services right from the outset, as we are aware that many other funeral directors don’t choose to advertise direct funerals, a marketing tactic we find uncomfortable and exploitative.
5 We believe that leaving out information is unethical; this is a traumatic time that many are at their most vulnerable, and emotionally unequipped to decipher vague pricing. This is, in our eyes, exploitative to a client who will often be unaware of more affordable funeral packages that would be far more suitable for their situation.
Tradition services in burial and cremation, our clients can also choose to have non-religious and humanist celebrations of life. We are able to follow your personal needs and requirements to keep to your ideals and wishes.
We offer a full list of pricing to guide you and your family as to all extra charges, from transport to flowers, music to willow caskets. These can befit your every personal taste, while attempting to soothe some of the strain at this traumatic time.
Our funeral services wish to be as transparent as possible. We offer a service that hopes to give you peace of mind by offering an open price plan and a full breakdown of each package available.
Our integrity is built upon a compassionate code of ethical and moral conduct, to find an option to suit the each client and family as requested and our funeral director, Philip, is committed to ensuring a sensitive and affordable service.
We are one of the few Brighton Funeral Directors who, for the sake of transparency and integrity, want you to be aware of all our funeral service options. Affordable options are especially suitable to those in need of a simple and lower cost funeral arrangement. 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 Poynings are experienced, sensitive, and aware of how hard arranging a funeral can be for a family or an individual.

“I want to thank you so much for all you did Philip, and for us the service was just as she would have wanted – there wasn’t one thing that we could have done better, and the majority of that was down to you.
You helped us in a very sad day, giving us the time to remember and honour a loved one -you treated our Mum with such respect and dignity”. – K. Sherlock.
