Which service is right for you?

As Funeral Directors serving the Saltdean area, Philip and Sallie are dedicated to helping clients plan funerals for their loved ones; vowing to remain flexible and responsive to what you have in mind for the day. Even if you’re unsure of how you’d like the funeral to go, it’s important to remember there is no right or wrong way. Instead, we will present you with your options and help you customise them until they feel just right. To start, you’ll have to think about the types of services below:

Attended Full Cremation Service

If you’re considering an attended full cremation service, it is typically priced at around £2,832 and will include a service complete with readings, music and tributes during the service.  The service would usually take place at the crematorium chapel, but the option to have the service at a parish church or somewhere more sentimental is also available as a consideration. 

Simple Direct to Grave Burial 

As Funeral Directors servicing Saltdean, we’re also able to help with the arrangements for a simple direct to grave burial, priced at £2,754. For many people, opting out of the church and graveside service is preferable, which makes this the best solution for them, and means your loved one is buried soon after their passing.

Full Traditional Burial Service

A full traditional burial service might be what we think of when we consider a funeral, but it has become a lot less rigid and doesn’t necessarily need to take place at a church parish anymore. At Sussex Funeral Service, we’re able to assist you in arranging a service in more unusual locations such as a local purpose-built barn venue, whether it’s a religious or secular service.  Regardless of what you choose for the service, a hearse will then deliver your loved one from there to the cemetery. Traditional burials usually cost around £3,849. 

Unattended Direct Cremation

Priced at around £1,182, an unattended direct cremation isn’t too unlike a direct to grave burial in that there is no service preceding it. For a lot of people who aren’t big on the fuss of a service, their final wish might include something like an unattended direct cremation. Because of the lack of a parish or secular service, it also means it becomes a slightly more affordable option.
