Funeral Directors Mile Oak

Philip and Sallie Evans are the husband-and-wife duo who jointly own and manage Sussex Funeral Services. As Funeral Directors servicing Mile Oak from our base in Brighton and Hove, we put all the care and compassion that you’d expect from an independently owned business into assisting with funeral arrangements. 

For Philip, an experienced Funeral Director with a certificate in Funeral Practice, it’s managing the operational side. For Sallie, it’s providing support in other areas, including care with a personal touch. Together we pride ourselves on covering all the bases whilst always remaining sensitive and flexible to your and your loved one’s needs. 

Which service is right for you?

Kenneth J. Doka once said, “One of the recognitions shared by humans throughout the world and over time is the importance of ritual”. The ritual might look different from culture to culture or from one religious group to another, but funerals remain very important rituals that can help us share in some measure of closure. 

Therefore, you might feel pressure to perfect the day, but it’s important to remember there is no right or wrong way to plan a funeral, only different avenues to consider. Perhaps you’d like a full traditional burial with a twist, or maybe you’d prefer something closer to a direct cremation, but whatever you choose, we’ll be right there to offer you support and assistance during the funeral-planning period.    

Simple Direct to Grave Burial 

This option, typically priced at £2,754, means that your loved one will be buried without a formal service, beforehand. True to our company slogan, we’ll assist with care, compassion and choice should you opt for this type of funeral. 

Unattended Direct Cremation

If you’re opting for a funeral without a service, you might also consider an unattended direct cremation. Because of the lack of any service beforehand, it’s typically the most affordable option, at a typical price of £1,182.  As Funeral Directors serving Mile Oak, we can still guide and advise you on an  interment or scattering of ashes following the direct cremation. 

Attended Full Cremation Service

On the other hand, if you’d like to arrange for a cremation with an attended full service to, that would include  such content as  readings and eulogies, well then we can help you put together such a service, with a typical cost being about  £2,832, for a starigthforward, fairly simple service.  

You can rest assured, as with all of our services, that we’ll go about assisting with the utmost professionalism, respect and sensitivity whilst guiding and supporting you every step of the way; whether that’s planning the service at a parish church, somewhere more sentimental or the crematorium where the cremation will take place at after the service. 

Full Traditional Burial Service

The most traditional option and the most expensive, is the full burial service which will include a parish or secular service, usually at a church or suitable chapel, before a hearse transports your loved one to the cemetery. Typically priced at around £3,849, this option offers a lot of flexibility to really personalise the day in such a way that meets your needs and honours your loved one.

Being experienced Funeral Directors in Mile Oak, we understand how gruelling it can be to arrange a funeral after having lost a loved one. That’s why we aim to simplify the process by offering you every option available to you, guiding and supporting in whatever decision you make.
