Our Experienced Team in Can Help You in Thakeham

‘No Fuss’, direct cremations and direct burial packages can help those who may need to think about affordability or wish to have a smaller, more private funeral arrangement. Whatever your reasons, our staff are sensitive, acting with compassionate discretion at all times. We Are Sensitive to Your Needs At Sussex Funeral Services we offer a range of services, with traditional packages also fully broken down – these are split into three parts: Our Professional Service charge, the Coffin, and the Disbursements/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. Sussex Funeral Services wish to acknowledge that a large funeral is not for everyone. We want our clients to be happy with the arrangements they feel are most suitable for them. Our open advertisement of direct and affordable private funerals, this means 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?

Those responsible for organising a loved one’s funeral may feel a huge amount of responsibility, yet may not wish to have a ceremony or service, for a multitude of possible reasons.

The options offered at Sussex Funeral Services are tailored to each client, no matter how personal or specific, making the process more reassuring and easier to deal with.

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

Sussex Funeral Services offer traditional, non-religious and humanist cremation and burials to suit all who require them. Offering a wide range of options, we hope to tailor a service to suit you.

Full Price Listing

We offer a full list of pricing to guide you and your family as to all 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.

Information about Thakeham

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
