We could not fault Whites funeral directors. Rachel was attentive, caring and proffesional. She made a very distressing time for my family very easy. The funeral directors onn the whole were absolutely amazing. I have already recommended them.

Hi Rachel. I was so pleased with everything you and the team done to make mums send off a very special one. Mum would have been pleased too. Thanks so much to all of you  All best Dave Briant

Simon Rigby 15th Jan 2024

Understanding. Caring and Compassionate. Relaxed. Inclusive. Simple words that mean so much to a family at such a time. Whites delivered on them all. We made several changes to the music, flowers and order of service along the way but, it was never a problem and the day could not have gone any better. Add to it the Celebrant that was chosen for us and who was excellent in his own right. The day was about my Mum and they all ensured that was the case. From the initial visit to the office to the final drop off at the wake, we couldn't have asked for anymore.

  • 5 Ruth Toone 4th Feb 2023

    I have been nothing but impressed by the service from Whites. They were responsive, flexible and, in particular, they listened (and heard). Thank you to Malcolm, Henry and the whole team.

  • 5 Gillian Turner 9th Jan 2023

    I am very grateful for the help that Whites gave to me and my family at a very difficult time.  They were frequently in touch to reassure me about the process, and Henry, in particular, kept me up to date with what was happening.  Thank you Henry, you did a great job.  I would definitely recommend your company.  I did find phone contact from my end rather strange as my initial contact was via the non existent Coop at Midhurst.  This, perhaps could be sorted out?

  • 5 Nicola Robertson 4th Jan 2023

    Very helpful and very quick under the circumstances that I had to get back to Australia.
    It was a smooth process even with a tight timeline to deal with and especially around Christmas! 

  • 5 Caroline Sawers 13th Dec 2022

  • 5 Geoff Chapman 24th Oct 2022

    I could not fault the whole team. The transfer of my mother in law 40 miles to Chichester from her care home was done without any problems and everything went perfectly thereafter.

    I have nothing but praise for Henry, Ryan on the day and everyone involved. They made a difficult time straightforward
    and seamless
