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.

Dave and Liddia are two very  caring people, they listen to you. They will give very good advice, they will find the best  funeral to serve your budget as best they can. I have used their services not only to set up end of life plans for clients, but also when l lost my brother. They were so supportive l cannot praise them enough. Before you make a final choice go and see them find out for yourself. A big thank you from my heart to you both.x

David  and Lydia were compassionate, caring and patient, immediately understanding the deep grief being felt by myself and my daughters from the loss of my beloved wife Merle. Lydia showed great sensitivity at the initial meeting at our home to discuss arrangements.  They called me most days to check how I was as well as to discuss the service details and progress, and were always happy to take my many calls. Nothing was too much trouble and they went many extra miles to ensure the service went as perfectly as possible. They even had the order of service reprinted as the first set were not quite right. David also arranged for our four grandchildren, so much loved by Merle, to release doves after the service. The celebrant they recommended was a perfect choice and the florist also did a great job.  The large congregation of around a hundred all felt the service to Merle was a lovely and fitting tribute to a much loved beautiful lady. Everything on the day went smoothly.  I cannot thank David and Lydia  enough for their care and support and would thoroughly recommend Staunton Funeral Services to anyone seeking a very supportive and personal service.  Five stars all the way without doubt.

David and Lydia were amazing through this hard time for me and my family losing dad Hugh. They made so much time for my mum, often visiting the home as mum is disabled and we were welcomed at any opportunity to pop in for a cup of tea and a chat whether about funeral details or just to talk about our feelings. I cannot recommend them highly enough, they were professional, but caring and truly wanted to help people through a difficult time, I cannot thank them enough and know if I am in the area and pop in they would only be too happy to see me. Thank you so much. Ginny
