When you are in need of support, the team at our funeral directors will be there for you.

You can also rest assured that your loved one will be treated with the high standard of integrity you would expect.

Formerly known as Colin Bennett Funeral Service, we have served the neighbourhood of Hangleton, along with the wider community of Hove, since 1998. You can find our funeral home on the Queens Parade, at the Grenadier pub end of Applesham Avenue; a location that places us within easy reach of neighbouring areas in Brighton & Hove, such as Mile Oak, Portslade and Southwick.

If you wish to spend some time with your loved one in the days preceding their funeral, we have a chapel of rest available. This peaceful environment offers comfort and privacy and, if it is more convenient for you, can be opened outside of normal hours.

You can speak to somebody at our Hangleton funeral directors any time of the day or night. To arrange your loved one’s funeral, call us today.

Our Simple funeral is available for £1,995 + third party costs, without compromising on the quality of the service that is delivered. Or our Full Service funeral can be tailored just how you wish, whether that be a traditional ceremony or a colourful celebration of life.

    Friendly and efficient service. Excellent organisational skills from Jennie and the team enabled us to hold the funeral within the short timescale we requested. Jennie helped us put together exactly the type of service that our Dad would have wanted, including recommending an excellent Celebrant. There was no pressure whatsoever to purchase additional items and services.

    Your staff were helpful and courteous throughout the whole process of the funeral arrangement. The funeral was smooth and timely and again the funeral director and attendants were thoughtful and on hand to assist when needed. Overall the service provided was excellent which is a reflection on the staff.
