Guide to Funeral Directors in Chichester

Chichester is the county town and the only city in West Sussex. Located in the South East of England, it is some 55 miles to the south-west of London. Long settled since Roman times, it is home to a medieval cathedral, many old churches and other notable architecture, including the Roman town walls which are the most complete old town defences in southern England.

There are around eight funerals directors in Chichester with several more in the surrounding area serving a population of 113,000. Six of these businesses are located within five miles of the city centre.

The last census showed that half of the population identify as Christian. However, with nearly a quarter of residents stating they are non-religious, funerals directors in Chichester are likely to have experience in arranging Humanist or secular funeral services.

Chichester council manages two cemeteries: Chichester Cemetery, on Church Road to the north east of the centre, and the cemetery at Petworth which is located about 15 miles to the north of the city. Chichester Crematorium, which is not run by the council, is on Westhampnett Road. There are two other crematoria relatively nearby, with Worthing Crematorium at Findon 19 miles away and Surrey and Sussex Crematorium 50 miles away at Crawley.

How much does a funeral cost?

The cost of a funeral depends on where you are in the UK and whether you choose a burial or a cremation. Natural burial is becoming increasingly popular, but can often be more expensive than burial in a traditional cemetery. The cost of coffins, flowers, catering and transport also varies a lot. There is also an almost unlimited list of options for personalising a service, such as professional funeral singers or a motorcycle-hearse. You can compare the price of funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

The funeral service for Richard Hammond on the 2nd February 2021, which I viewed on the web was very dignified and passed off without a fault. Obviously, your staff put a lot of work into the preparation of funerals and I greatly appreciated this. I was delighted that the Royal Navy Farewell Protocol was part of the service, Richard loved his time in the Navy and well earned this touching ceremony. As the eulogy was my script, I was pleased with the Minister's presentation of it. I was not involved in the planning of the service, so am not in a position to comment on other aspects of contact with your service. I particularly want to commend your Assistant, Bonnie Gostage, for the way in which she managed and processed my order for a DVD copy of the service. From the day that I first contacted her to the day that I received it, she was most helpful, kindly, patient, efficient and painstaking in the manner in which she handled everything; sometimes, at no small inconvenience to herself. In my view, one could not have a more suitable assistant as Bonnie working on the front line of the service that you provide. With sincere and grateful thanks. Olive Mooney

I cannot recommend more highly Moore's Traditional Funeral Directors. From initial contact, through planning, order of service design and production, and then on the actual day itself, everything was carried out with the utmost professionalism and care. Nothing was too much trouble for the Havant office, who guided and advised us throughout the whole process. Above all, Moore's provided a traditional, personal and friendly service.

For anyone who is facing the loss of a loved one the overwhelming feeling is 'where do I start to plan the funeral', one that appropriately celebrates the life just ended. This wonderful team at Moores offered a hand that held us throughout. From the moment we lost our beloved Mum, we were guided gently with dignity respect and total understanding. It was as if a new friend had stepped forward and said we are here to help. Bonnie especially listened to our needs, despite dealing with many other families, gently advising and offering support. Thankyou all so much for the time, patience and professional care afforded to us and especially to Mum from the moment of first contact to when she was looked after in the care of Lesley and his colleagues, to when she was returned to us after the service. You all made us feel better at such a sad time.
