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, and our ‘No Fuss’, direct cremation or direct to grave burial options can help those in need. This may be for a number of reasons that our sensitive staff can adhere to with discretion and sensitivity to the traumatic difficulties that losing a loved one entails. Offering the Support You Need The traditional packages we offer are also fully broken down in to clear pricing for your peace of mind. Whatever your wishes, our traditional packages are split into three main costs: The Coffin, our Professional Service Charge and our Third-Party Costs.
Our funeral director, Philip, is dedicated in his approach, offering simplistic packages to help those who need help the most, with options to suit those who wish for a private funeral – this can also suit those who need to grieve in a way they find most natural. We want what is best for your loved one and your circumstances, and we uphold that there should never be any pressure to have a larger ceremony if this is any way unsuitable or inappropriate. 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.
Some individuals and families wish for no ceremony for a number of reasons. Those with a small family, or who may need to think about the financial outlay of a ceremonial package may also wish to opt for a smaller, direct cremation or burial.
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.
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.
While we offer more traditional burial services, a growing number of clients wish to have a non religious, an alternative or Humanist ceremony. Whatever your preferences and requirements, we can help to make this happen
Our pricing is fully tailored for the individual. Packages range to suit each personal situation and financial implication. We hope that this open listing helps to deliver a service that will ease stress at an already difficult time.
We pride ourselves on offering a fully transparent funeral service to help your family in their most important time of need. We hope that by openly providing direct funerals we can ease some of the expectation and financial distress often entailed.
Our compassionate and ethical approach to arranging a funeral or cremation is upheld personally by our funeral director, Philip, who hopes to help you in your time of need with a package that suits your wishes, completely.
As a funeral directors, we believe that our clients need as much support as possible. Offering a clear and principled range of funeral options, we want you to feel able to trust that we understand those who wish for a more affordable or private funeral arrangement. The massive loss felt when losing a loved one, whether a friend, spouse, family member or child, can be an enormous shock and create much upheaval in every area of your life. The team at Sussex Funeral Services pride themselves on their sensitivity to all circumstances, as they realise how difficult a funeral, and all its practicalities, can be in Rottingdean.

“We’d like to stress that we enjoyed meeting you very much and were impressed by your responsiveness and professionalism.
I don’t think I managed to speak to you after, perhaps I did but it was a bit of a blur, so thank you again for all the time and thought you put into the service and to help us through a very sad time”. – Anne
