I cannot say enough good things about Dillistones, the branch in Littlehampton where wonderful. They took great care of my Stepmum and myself and we were totally reassured that our loved one was being given the respect he deserved. Thank you Gaynor, the staff member that helped us arrange all and also made suggestions about things we hadn't thought of!! Your care and consideration was above and beyond. Will recommend you to anyone that requires your services. Regards Sam

From the moment we contacted the lovely lady Gaynor at dillistones in Littlehampton we could not have had a better experience. She was very friendly, compationate and knowledgable. Having never arranged a funeral before she guided us through the process giving helpful advice and suggestions. At the end of all our deliberations we had the most perfect send off for my dad. I know he would have smiled and laughed at the pictures and tributes and enjoyed the music.
Our celebrant, Clive, was wonderful, he read out our tributes and memories with humour and really highlighted my dad's personality.
After the funeral we realised we had no pictures of our dad's beautiful flowers, Gaynor worked her magic and was able to arrange for someone at the crematorium to take some for us. A memory so easily could have been lost.
Everyone involved in my dad's send off were wonderful.

Gaynor at the Littlehampton branch was fantastic nothing was ever too much trouble. She made this sad, tough time easier to deal with as arranging the funeral felt stress free other than attendee numbers due to the pandemic (nobody’s fault out of everyone’s hands)
Thank you for your impeccable service, your after care in showing me how to open my mums urn 5 years on was second to none. Thank you Gaynor you are a true asset to the Dillistone’s Name and should feel proud

Gaynor in your Littlehampton office couldn't have been more helpful and made things very easy for us.
She handled everything in a professional and sympathetic manner which was most appreciated.
Her help in selecting Neil Sagar-Stewart as Celebrant was perfect.
Thank you.

The staff were kind, sympathetic, caring and very professional. They covered all options available for my fathers funeral. Explained every thing clearly and of course the costs involved in great detail.
A lovely small chapel of rest to the rear of the building where my family and I were able to say our fare wells to our Dad.
I would recommend Dillistone Funeral Directors to anyone having to deal with a lost one as they really understand and look after you at this difficult time.

From the start very effience making the phone call and getting call back from nearest undertakers. Julie at littlehampton was very helpful and kind and could not do enough to make our sad time easier to deal with. The staff on the day were also very helpful and polite.
