About Us

Francis Chappell & Sons have been at the heart of the London community for over 175 years. Our Francis Chappell & A G Rice funeral home is in East Grinstead, one of Chappell's 25 funeral homes in south east England.

We continually strive to set the bar in standards for funeral services, care and facilities, because we understand how important it is to get things right when it comes to saying farewell. We still carry the same values of our founders from the 19th century; uncompromising compassion, quality and professionalism are at the heart of all we do.

Our funeral home has a beautiful frontage and comforting interior to help you feel more at ease when you visit us. Our team will listen to your thoughts and wishes with the utmost care, guiding you wherever you feel you need it. We are proud to work with some of the longest serving, hardest working and most dedicated funeral professionals in Greater London and West Sussex, some of whom worked with the Chappell family themselves.

We are always here to help you, 24 hours a day. Please call us as soon as you need any advice or assistance.

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.
