About Us

R High & Sons Funeral Directors in Sittingbourne is here for you at this difficult time. We offer support and comfort and will help you to arrange a heartfelt funeral service for your loved one.

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.

R High & Sons Funeral Directors is here for you. Give us a call any time of the day or night and speak with one of our caring team.

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.
