The staff couldn’t do enough for us and made a very sad time much easier to cope. We were guided through the process by Martin who kept us informed the whole time. James was in charge on the day and everything went smoothly we were able to give our mum the beautiful service we had wanted.

Being in the position of a close member of my family passing away, it was important for me to get the best possible service for my father. From the time of passing to the funeral, Arthur Denier Acted in a professional and dignified manor through out. They arrived at 2.00am to take my father away and I was treated with respect and understanding. Nicky who dealt with the arrangements was helpful and comforting under such a difficult time, she did all the arrangements including the order of service. We worked together so I got exactly what I wanted, also involving my sisters. I would like to thank everyone including Daren the hearse driver, the funeral director and coffin bearers.
Response from Arthur Denyer Funeral Directors

Arthur Denyer Funeral Directors have given me a first class service from start to finish. My husband had terminal cancer and when I had to make the arrangement it was conducted in a very sensitive and informative way - nothing was too much trouble and everything was explained beautifully clearly. When my husband did pass in the middle of the night they came out straight away and was able to take my husband in a very dignified way. The funeral was carried out with thought and precision every detail was perfectly executed. Thank you very much to all of you.
Response from Arthur Denyer Funeral Directors
We are incredibly grateful that you took the time to leave us this review. It’s good to hear that you and the family received helpful guidance through this time and that we provided a professional service to you.
Rating 5.0
I suppose like many I had some preconceived notions about my first involvement in arranging a funeral. I cannot thank Lauren at Arthur Denyer's and the people who accompanied the funeral cortege enough for their gravitas, compassion and shear professionalism leading up to, during and even after my mother's funeral.
I was expecting to be dealing with someone similar in age to myself - I'm 61. Lauren is a young lady half my age but seemingly with gravitas and wisdom beyond her years. My younger brother and I were anxious to avoid a negative and depressing funeral day. Lauren gently suggested possible options which neither of us would have considered without her knowledge. She acted as a sounding board for our ideas and a perfect foil for helping to turn things in the right direction.
Without her we would certainly have had a church service followed by the cremation but for Phil and I that seemed too downbeat. Instead we had the cremation followed by a church thanksgiving service followed by teas and coffees and a chance to chat to old church friends that knew mum best. This turned out to be a very positive and uplifting experience.
I don't yet have a funeral plan in place but I will certainly be using Arthur Denyer's and Dignity as I am so confident that they will handle my 'send off' with the same expertise that they did with my mother.
Thanks again Lauren. I cannot speak too highly of my experiences with you.

I only have high praise for the service I received from Arthur Denyer Funeral Directors in Brighton when my mum passed away. They were very helpful and professional, and steered me through the arrangements with ease - which is just what you need when you're grieving and don't feel able to make simple decisions. The funeral was beautiful, and the team on the day were great, helping us with decisions about etiquette, flowers etc. Not wanting a hugely religious service, they matched me with a great vicar who conducted the service just to our wishes.

All in all, if it hadn't been such a sad occasion, it was a lovely day, and I know my mum would've loved it. Thank you Arthur Denyers! :)

Everything about my mother’s dignity funeral was easy and stress free.
Martin was very courteous and understanding and was a pleasure to deal with.
The whole day went smoothly, without any hitches and was commented on by family and relatives.

Rating 4.0
The initial meeting was efficient and sufficed for the whole operation. Options and for the most part pricing were clearly explained. All staff were courteous and behaved appropriately. The funeral went smoothly and I have no negative feedback.

However we as a family did put ourselves in a position unable to shop around or negotiate price because the deceased had already been moved to the funeral parlour before we started. We remain unconvinced that close to £6000 is a reasonable cost for a modest burial with no cars behind the hearse, etc, and look forward to findings of consumer authorities' current investigations into the trade.

THE SERVICE WAS GENERALLY GOOD. THERE WAS ONE HICCUP WHEN WE WERE ASKED TO PROOF READ THE ORDER OF SERVICE AND WE MISSED A MISTAKE THAT HAD BEEN MADE WITH THE DATE OF THE DEATH WHICH WAS A MONTH OUT AND SHOWN AS ONLY 2 DAYS BEFORE THE ORDER OF SERVICE WAS SENT TO US. ALTHOUGH OUR FAULT THE FUNERAL ARRANGER DID NOT OFFER TO SHARE THE RESPONSIBILITY AS IT SEEMED REASONABLE TO EXPECT THIS WOULD BE CHECKED BEFORE SENDING IT ON TO US. THE RESULT OF THE MISTAKE WAS THE ORDER OF SERVICE NEEDED REPRINTING ALTHOUGH DIGNITY TO COVER PART OF THE COST.

THE SERVICE ON THE DAY WAS EXCELLENT. MY BROTHER AND I WERE PALL BEARERS AND WE WERE KINDLY ASSISTED THROUGHOUT.
Response from Arthur Denyer Funeral Directors
