Sussex Funeral Services

We realise that arranging a funeral can be one of the most challenging, heart-breaking and difficult things you will ever have to do for your loved one. While we offer fully bespoke, tailored funeral services that can be held in a religious or non-religious capacity, this is not always an appropriate option for all of our clients. The Funeral Director Industry Associations require all their members to offer a basic, Direct Cremation funeral or Direct Burial funeral, this being a given specification as part of their fundamental code of practice. In reality, a recent ‘Which?’ consumer survey has reported that despite this requirement, many choose not to openly advertise this option, making it so that the client has to specifically ask.

Your Family’s Wishes are Ours

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. These are especially suitable to those in need of a simple and lower cost funeral option.

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 experienced staff at Sussex Funeral Services are well aware of how difficult organising a funeral can be.

With this firmly in mind, it has been brought to our attention that a number of those experiencing loss of a loved one are not made aware of simple, compassionate funeral packages that exist to help ease the strain of loss and the monetary implications that can also follow.

Our Direct Burial and Cremation Funeral Services

Suitable for those individuals who may have a small number of family members, those who would wish for no ceremonial ritual, and those who need to practically think about the cost of burial or cremation – we understand that many funeral services do not advertise their basic requirement to offer an affordable funeral package that treats the deceased with the same compassionate care with the option to hold a private and direct ceremony.

Sussex Funeral Services offer complete price transparency in all their packages, no matter how intricate, making the process that little bit easier to judge and move forward. In truth, a great many alternative funeral services do not offer an advertised direct funeral service, making it awkward for the family. Many services do not list their pricing online, becoming less transparent in their costing  – a marketing behaviour we find somewhat uncomfortable – this lack of full clarity at an already traumatic time is, in our eyes, exploitative, omitted when those who are already vulnerable and in most need of added peace of mind are misguided from the outset, both in terms of their options, and that more simple packages even exist.

National Society of Allied Independent Funeral Directors

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.
