Funeral Directors Shoreham

Jointly owned by Philip and Sallie Evans, Sussex Funeral Directors is an independent funeral home servicing Shoreham and neighbouring communities. They not only pride themselves on their professionalism, but also the compassionate care they bring to the table as Funeral Directors in Shoreham. With thorough experience and a hands-on approach, Phillip and Sallie understand that the death of a loved one is testing enough without the stress of having to arrange a funeral. That is why they strive to offer as much sensitivity and support in every step along the way; from an initial face-to-face meeting to sorting out the smallest details of the service. 

Which service is right for you?

There are a number of funeral options available and without clear instructions from your loved one about how they would like the day to go, it can easily become overwhelming. It’s important to understand there is no right or wrong way, only choices that’ll enable you to best capture your loved one and how you’d like for them to be remembered. Some people choose a secular (non-religious) occasion, while others might opt for a church service but with a motorcycle procession. Regardless of the service, Sallie and Philip will be flexible and responsive and make recommendations for you to consider without being rushed. Here are some options: 

Full Traditional Burial Service

Funerals are becoming more personalised over time, but traditional burial services mostly follow the burial rites of a given religion and the customs that go along with it. For example, a traditional funeral might include a formal service at a local parish with readings and prayers chosen by the family, and a procession to a cemetery or crematorium. This service generally costs about £3,849. 

Simple Direct to Grave Burial 

As Funeral Directors in Shoreham, we often arrange direct to grave burial where a loved one is buried shortly after passing without a formal church, secular or graveside service. This option is priced about £2,754.

Attended Full Cremation Service

An attended cremation service can either take place at the crematorium itself or a local parish. Like a traditional burial, this option will include readings and eulogies before your loved one is cremated. If the service takes place at a church – or if you’d prefer a secular service, which can be conducted anywhere from woodland to sea – then your loved one will be escorted to the crematorium after the service. This option will cost in the region of £2,832.

Unattended Direct Cremation

It could also be that your loved one discussed cremation, but opted out of the funeral service that proceeds it. In that case, Sussex Funeral Directors, as Funeral Directors servicing Shoreham, will be able to arrange for an unattended direct cremation for the cost of about £1,182.
