ARKA Original Funerals of Brighton do all we can to make sure our customers feel comfortable and unpressured, so that they’re able to make the right choices when it comes to arranging the funeral of a loved one. We encourage the bereaved to take space and time to make all the important decisions in their own time. We can then offer a range of advice and information about the wide spectrum of options that we have available for both traditional and green/eco-friendly funerals. ARKA Original Funerals are able to liaise with council and church-owned cemeteries and crematoria on your behalf and we are able to arrange woodland burials, cremations, interment of ashes and ashes scattering. We encourage you to participate as much or as little in the funeral arrangement process as you wish – it really is up to you. We can help to create and style personal funeral ceremonies, according to your requirements and the wishes of the deceased. This is because, at ARKA Original Funerals, we believe that every funeral can be a unique experience, truly representing the life, beliefs, and wishes of the deceased, as well as their friends and family. This can be achieved through the provision of the ministers, or celebrants of your choice, a fitting selection of music, a carefully chosen funeral vehicle or form of transport and other poignant and personal touches. Through our dedicated and highly professional team, we offer a funeral service which is undertaken to only the highest of standards. We are people first and funeral directors second, and have a gentle and respectful approach to funeral preparation and arrangement. Should you wish to do so, you are welcome to join us in all aspects of the preparation of your loved one including dressing the deceased, and carrying the coffin on the day of the ceremony. No matter how you wish to make the whole experience more personal and meaningful, we will do all we can to help.

Well done, you delivered a great service on the day and your shops are just like going into someone house, really welcoming and homely. Your service was unique and very personalised, you took time to incorporate something for everyone.

From the first call with ARKA when my Dad passed away, right up until his funeral, the level of service was exceptional. They helped me with every aspect of arranging the funeral, including sourcing a classic hearse that was truly magnificent and was very fitting for my Dads final journey. The staff are very knowledgable and all I dealt with were absolutely charming. I would not hesitate to recommend ARKA to anyone arranging a funeral.

ARKA were brilliant. Cara gently guided me through all the decisions and she gave me space to sort things out. She looked after my mum, Meg, and I could visit mum, laid out beautifully, whenever I wanted. She also kept me informed of the approx total cost at each stage of planning. My mums funeral was really lovely, Cara guided the service with thoughtful care and spoke beautifully. Everyone there said so. But she also stepped back allowing the family, us, to love and remember my mum. It was a touching, beautiful service and a celebration of my mums life and our love for her. I am very grateful to ARKA. The whole experience was so very comforting.
