R High & Sons Funeral Directors, Sittingbourne
About our Sittingbourne funeral home
The loss of somebody special affects people in different ways, which is why our funeral directors will always treat you with respect and as an individual. We will take the time to listen and find out about you, your family and your loved one, while offering guidance to ensure a funeral that is personal to you.
Having had a presence in the Swale district of Kent since 1872, we are a trusted name when it comes to providing dignified and compassionate funeral care. The advice we offer is drawn from the experience we have gained over this time, with the resulting knowledge passed down from generation to generation. That means you will never feel as though you are making the decisions alone.
Our funeral home is situated at the end of Bayford Road, which makes us accessible to all areas within Sittingbourne, such as Milton Regis and Kemsley, as well as those surrounding the town, including Bapchild, Newington and Teynham.
Our premises is equipped with seven chapels of rest, where you and your family can spend some peaceful moments with your loved one, privately and in comfort. We can open the funeral home outside of normal hours for your visit, if this is more convenient for you.
We also have a beautiful service chapel, which provides an appropriate environment for the ceremony and can accommodate up to 30 people.

Reviews of our services
Special thanks also to Matthew who sourced the music and ensured everything went to plan on the day. I cannot thank everyone enough for providing such a beautiful service in celebration of my mums life.I Would highly recommend them.
We have used R H and sons previously and both times we have been pleased with the service they provided.
We were very impressed with the high standard by of the cars and how smart the funeral director etc were, one other aspect I was very touched by was that each time the funeral director passed my Mothers coffin he bowed his head in respect, how lovely was that! THANK YOU HIGH'S
I would like to, once again, say a massive thank you to all at Highs for an impeccable service.
From start to finish everything was dealt with perfectly.
Even aftercare is offered. Highly recommended.
Thanks to sue and Mathew and the team for all your support.
