Introduction to Brighton Funeral Directors

Sussex Funeral Services are Independent Brighton Funeral Directors and Undertakers, serving the Brighton, Hove and Portslade communities. We offer a complete funerary service providing all aspects of funeral care and arrangements beginning from the moment you contact us.

We realise that arranging a funeral can be one of the most challenging things you will ever have to do for your loved one. That is why we not only care for the deceased with the utmost respect, sensitivity and professionalism, but we can also support you through the myriad of options available to mark the passing of a life. We emphasise our company slogan For Caring, Compassion & Choice. As a truly independent Brighton Funeral Directors, we rely on our excellent reputation.

There are no ‘rules’ for funerals. Being truly independent local funeral directors and undertakers means we are able to provide a complete bespoke service which is responsive to individual needs. Whether you require a traditional religious service, or an alternative funeral approach; whether you are seeking a simple, cost effective occasion or a more extravagant affair – we can cater for your specific requirements. We will help you to consider the various choices available, without being rushed.

We can advise on cremations and burials, choice of coffins and flower arrangements. We can even arrange to have the service at home or other suitable venue, instead of the usual crematorium chapel service. Whatever you choose we can help you arrange it all, even a suitable venue for a gathering afterwards, with any catering needs that might be required.

As a local funeral business, we make every effort to get involved in the Brighton, Hove and Portslade communities and strive to create the kind of personal relationship which leads to individual, sensitive service. We are flexible and responsive to your needs. We take great pride in our services and seek to build a relationship of trust with you and our communities. You can be confident that the service you receive from us will be delivered, to the highest standards and with the utmost respect.

We are proud to say that we are approved members of the National Society of Allied Independent Funeral Directors (SAIF), which means that as professional undertakers we have met with the Associations industry criteria and operate under a code of practice to ensure that we maintain the professions standards.

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.

It is never an easy time, saying goodbye to a loved one. Philip was great, helping us every step of the way. We had a dignified and fitting send off for my Father in law George.

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
