‘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.
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.
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.
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.
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, is committed to offering your the most personal and suitable burial or cremation; Experienced and sensitive, we are proud to work with you in your time of need.
Sussex Funeral Services are one of the few Brighton Funeral Directors who want you to be aware of all our funeral service options in the name of decency and clarity. 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 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. 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 Thakeham.
As a result, we know that by offering a range of funeral options, you can retain some kind of control and freedom in a resolutely difficult time. We are proud to offer affordable packages, to help you with any financial worries or implications that a funeral, however unexpected, may cause.
Our clients’ comments are of much importance to us. We’d like to share them with you.
“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.
Mr Evans and his staff offered high quality, professional care and assistance to our friend Sheila and ourselves throughout all the funeral arrangements and we would like to thank Philip and his caring staff for all their help, their professional care and assistance – We would highly recommend Sussex Funeral Services in the event of losing a loved one.” – ‘Dermot’
