The service provided by Seaford and Newhaven Funeral Directors were excellent. At such a difficult time the pressure was eased with suggestions for the readings and music at the service and help was always available.

The funeral itself went ahead much easier and smoother than I would have thought possible.

We have used Seaford and Newhaven three times now and on each occasion they have shown sympathy and empathy, taking our requirements on board, while still organising everything so that it runs like clockwork. At a difficult time for the family this was much appreciated.

I would like to thank Rosemary and her team at Seaford & Newhaven Funeral Directors for their support and understanding during a very difficult time. My father passed unexpectedly and suddenly and we were in complete shock, but the team at Seaford were brilliant, it was difficult due to the covid restrictions but they did everything possible to make it the best for us. My elderly mother is disabled and poorly, she is struggling to come to terms with losing her soul mate of 60+ years, but her words in the limousine on the way home were ...
"in my 83 years i have sadly been to many funerals, but i can honestly say that was the best!"
Praise indeed from a lady who had just said goodbye to her husband!
Thank you so much xx

Losing someone dear is always hard, but Rosemary at Seaford & Newhaven Funeral Directors was so kind, caring and helpful. It did help that she and I had met previously when my friend was arranging and paying for his funeral plan. Rosemary was extremely helpful at a time when my brain was definitely not functioning properly. We weren't going to have any flowers at all, but I'm so happy I took her advice and ordered a spray for the top of the coffin. The drivers and staff were very respectful at all times and went above and beyond with regard to bringing the hearse and limo to our door ... it isn't easy to get to. I offer my grateful thanks for a well organised service and for all the support offered to me.
Response from Seaford & Newhaven Funeral Directors

The two ladies I spoke with on the telephone at Seaford had very caring voices. Rosemary arranged all aspects to my satisfaction and the service at the Chapel went as I had hoped. James and his colleagues were both professional and respectful. I found the whole process easier to get through as I had imagined.

Rosemary, Shellie and the team have been amazing in arranging every aspect of our wonderful mother's funeral during these difficult COVID times: sensitive, patient, professional and accommodating. We were able to design (at no extra cost) our own Order of Service, and have a cardboard casket delivered to the house which we then hand decorated accordingly. They had also arranged and directd my father's funeral in 2009, and Rosemary was fantastic - going above and beyond - searching records to find out some details that we wanted for our mothers.

There was however confusion over the price of memorial cards which only became apparent - too late - when invoiced, so it is important to clarify individual costs of items from the outset.

A big thank you to everyone at Seaford & Newhaven Funeral Directors - a bespoke community service - guiding us through a very sad time with such personal care. You enabled us to give our mother (and previously our father) the beautiful send off she so deserved.
Response from Seaford & Newhaven Funeral Directors

Rosemary was very helpful and managed all of our requirements for our son's funeral. Her kind and friendly attitude helped us through our grief.
The service by our friend Bob Carrington went very well, as did all other aspects of the funeral thanks to Rosemary and her team and the staff of Seaford cemetery.
