About our Hythe funeral home

Hambrook & Johns Funeral Directors in Hythe has a long-established presence on the Kent coast, providing the highest standard in funeral care to the local community. We are here to ensure your loved one receives a farewell truly reflective of their life.

Our first commitment is to you. A pledge that forms the basis of everything we do. From the care we offer, through to the funeral and how we make certain all aspects of the occasion are tailored to your specific wishes.

You will receive sympathy and understanding from the first time you speak with one of our professional funeral directors, along with all of the support you need. We aim to ease some of the burden the loss of a loved one can place on you, by helping to arrange the funeral you want.

You can rely on us for guidance and advice, when you need it, as well as being here for you if you just want to talk. It also goes without saying that we can cater for all types of ceremony, whether it be religious, humanist, traditional, or something closer to an uplifting celebration.

Our funeral home is located at the town end of the Dymchurch Road (next to the Red Lion pub) and is easily accessible to the local community, as well as areas outside of Hythe, such as Palmarsh, Lympne, West Hythe and New Romney.

It is equipped with a chapel of rest, where, should you wish, you can spend some time with your loved one in comfort and privacy. We can open our premises outside of normal hours, allowing you to visit at a time more convenient to you.

Our team of funeral directors is available to talk 24 hours of the day. We will be here for you, when you call.

From our very first visit we were guided and helped with each aspect of my Sisters funeral arrangements in a kindly professionally manner. Prior to the funeral day itself I was contact by the funeral director who would be with us on the day to run through what would happen and if I had any special requests. This I found so useful as on the day of the funeral itself, it would have been difficult to take any of this information in, but I knew what would be happening at each stage. All staff showed the greatest respect and kindness, I couldn’t have expected any more.

Could not recommend these undertakers enough. Very professional and sympathetic. Allowed us to pick the type of funeral and service we wanted. Assisted and supported us all the way including during and after the funeral. Nothing was too much trouble for them.

Everyone was so kind. Even when I just popped round with something extra to put into Dad's coffin I was invited in and given time to talk and offered a drink. All the staff were amazing, from the gentlemen who came to collect my father when he died to the women who gave me support through the whole process.
Thank you all!
