Funeral Directors Peacehaven

Eager to support their community, Philip and Sallie are the husband-and-wife team behind Sussex Funeral Services. As qualified Funeral Directors also servicing the Peacehaven area, we work from out of our Brighton and Hove office where we regularly assist clients from the neighbouring communities in providing funeral care for their loved ones. With many years of experience, we realise planning a funeral is a difficult thing, especially when you’re bereaved, which is why we make it our mission to guide you through your options, provide compassionate care and support, and go about arranging your loved one’s funeral ethically and with the personal touch that you’d expect from a family-owned business. 

Which service is right for you?

The most important thing to remember when planning a funeral, is that there are no rules. Instead, there are basic types of funerals that you’re able to personalise and turn into something bespoke and fitting to cherish your loved one. This could be a traditional burial led by a Minister, or something alternative that’s more suited to celebrating your loved one’s life. Whatever you choose, Sussex Funeral Services will assist in a professional, caring and ethical way, offering you support at every step of the way. Below are some of the options available to you:

Simple Direct to Grave Burial 

As the name suggests, this is the simplest of burial funeral types. The direct to grave burial usually takes place shortly after your loved ones passing and doesn’t involve a service in a church or at the graveside. It’s typically priced at around £2,754.

Full Traditional Burial Service

On the other hand, a full traditional burial includes a church service before a procession, led by a hearse, takes your loved one to the cemetery. This is the most traditional approach and the service is usually held in the local parish church, or other appropriate venue such as a cemetery chapel; but as Funeral Directors for Peacehaven, we’re able to personalise it to take place somewhere more sentimental, should you prefer. You can expect to pay around £3,849, for this option but does depend on your preferences and needs.

Unattended Direct Cremation

Generally priced at around £1,182, an unattended direct cremation is similar to a direct to grave burial. This means there will be no service at all, making it an affordable option, especially if your loved one’s wish was for something fuss-free.    This has been one of the most increasing popular options over the last few years.

Attended Full Cremation Service

Alternatively, there’s also the option of full cremation services which can take place and usually does, entirely at the crematorium, with a full service, complete with readings and eulogies etc.   If you prefer to, you can change the location of the service to somewhere more personal, such as a community hall or outside in the open air countryside. At Sussex Funeral Service, we’ll present you with every option available to you with this type of funeral; usually priced at around £2,832. 

As Funeral Directors servicing Peacehaven, will present you with every choice, letting you consider them without ever rushing you or asking you to overspend.
