Direct to Grave

This is what we like to call our completely ‘No Fuss’ burial option

Our ‘No Fuss’ direct burial is an affordable alternative to the traditional funeral, which separates the ceremony from the burial, and leaves families free to arrange a memorial, or celebration of life service, away from the graveside, and in their own time.

Arrangements can be made without you needing to visit us

It is a fixed price of £1,100 (+ Burial Fees)

Phil from Sussex Funeral Services was absolutely fantastic in organising my Dad's funeral. He's done quite a few Hindu funerals before so knew exactly what we needed and organised everything on the short time we needed it don...
Phillip was great, he went threw everything with me and even filled out the paperwork I would definitely recommend sussex Funeral services
10/10 - Couldn't have asked for more, professional, courteous, kind, friendly and great value. Thanks Phil and Bob.
