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.

If you have any queries please contact the Cemeteries Officer on (01424) 787523 or email
