The majority of people will use a funeral director for a funeral, but it is possible to make the necessary arrangements independently. However, we must point out that when arranging a funeral independently, there are certain aspects that you may find distressing, so any decision must be carefully considered.

Rother District Council does not provide a funeral directing service and does not wish to promote any particular type of arrangement or choice.

The links below provide sites from which to gain advice on this issue, as well as providing further links to other sites and organisations. If you decide to arrange the funeral independently the relevant forms are available from the Cemeteries Officer.

If you have any additional questions or queries please contact the Cemeteries Officer on (01424) 787523 or email  Alternatively download the form below, fill in and post with your query to: Cemeteries Officer, Town Hall, Bexhill-on-Sea, East Sussex, TN39 3JX.
