Serving communities in Sussex and Surrey since 1855

Welcome to Freeman Brothers. We are an independent, family-run firm of funeral directors that has been serving families in Sussex and Surrey since 1855.

We are proud members of the National Association of Funeral Directors and the Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors to ensure we offer a fair, ethical and customer-oriented service.

We are experienced in arranging funerals for a variety of religious denominations and beliefs, as well as secular ceremonies, and aim to provide all our clients with a respectful and bespoke funeral service. We also offer a comprehensive service for unattended, direct cremations- visit this page for more information.

How much does a funeral cost?

It can be hard to know how much a funeral might cost, especially as third-party fees can vary considerably and are sometimes not included in our competitors' quotes. Our easy-to-use estimation tool takes all aspects of the arrangement into account, giving you a realistic view right from the outset, so there are no surprises. Additionally, our statutory information page offers further detail regarding our standardised pricing.

Understanding the needs of bereaved people.

Our business is built on understanding, respect and sensitivity. As funeral directors, we recognise that, after someone dies, guidance is often needed through all aspects of arranging the funeral. We provide a comprehensive service so that your stress is minimised at what can be the most difficult of times.

Supporting our local community.

The Freeman Brothers Funeral Directors Community Team was set up in 2017 in recognition of the Company’s ability to support a range of groups within the local area. We are pleased to have supported organisations such as The Butterfly Project, AgeUK Horsham District, Posh Club Crawley, Gravity Social Club, St Catherine’s Hospice, The Mary How Trust, and a variety of local schools, churches and social clubs.
