Not everyone feels capable of going to the crematorium on the day of the funeral, so we have teamed up with Cissbury Barns to offer you a different type of package.

This involves us bringing your loved one to the barns ready for you and your guests to hold a private service with a celebrant of your choosing.

Cissbury Barns are a peaceful and tranquil venue set high on the South Downs at the top of the Cissbury Estate. Surrounded by beautiful mature trees and far-reaching views the Barns offer a unique setting for larger funeral ceremonies and receptions.

Under one mile from Worthing Crematorium and Durrington Cemetery, it is a unique and flexible space to spend time with family and friends.

The Barns will be exclusively yours for the time you are with us. We can accommodate from 50 to 200 guests and offer a range of catering options and fully licensed bar.

There is easy access from the A24, a large private car park and disabled access.

The hire charge of £700 is for exclusive use of the East and West Barns, private bar, walled gardens and parking for a three-hour period. If the East Barn is not included the hire charge is £595. Each additional hour or part hour is charged at £100.

At the time of the arrangement you will be required to pay a minimum £1000 deposit with the outstanding balance to be invoiced five days after the day of the funeral. If you are wishing to claim DWP you will need to inform us of this at the time of arrangement.

Should you wish to organise a pre-paid funeral plan please add an extra £250 to the above price.

Tara guided us through an incredibly emotional experience. She was respectful, compassionate, friendly, professional and nothing was too much to ask. I would highly recommend her for any funeral, knowing you and your loved one will be well taken care of. Truly a beautiful soul. Natalie Mardell.
