2019 is the 20th anniversary year for Richard Green Funeral Service – who remain the only independent and family Funeral Service in Uckfield and Lewes.
Richard Green has personally been working as a Funeral Director for over 45 years, and it was the dissatisfaction of working for large group companies which led him to opening the Uckfield branch in 1999.
The last 20 years has seen demand for our professional yet friendly service increase, leading to the opening of the Lewes branch in 2003, and its subsequent move to the current larger premises in 2014.
Many of our clients come to us as a result of personal recommendations, and we feel that this is something to be very proud of.
In 2018, we helped over 200 local families, not just from Uckfield and Lewes, but from surrounding towns and villages such as Newhaven, Seaford, Ringmer, Hailsham, Heathfield, Crowborough, as well as further afield in West Sussex and Kent.
We were also awarded the South East Regional Funeral Planner of the Year award. Golden Charter CEO Suzanne Grahame said: “The respected and caring work of independent funeral directors within their local communities often goes unrecognised and so it gives me great pleasure to congratulate the team at Richard Green Funeral Service for their tremendous achievement in winning this award. The award recognises the excellent service the team has delivered to their local community, by helping individuals through the funeral plan process and supporting families when they need it the most.”
