Fuller & Scott, funeral directors in Uckfield for more than 50 years, are part of a company which can trace its history back three centuries.
The parent company is CPJ Field which has specialised in funeral arrangements since the late 1600s.
The Fuller & Scott team, of Jodie Barden, Karen Crisp and Debbie Lynam, is based in Civic Approach, and welcomes anyone who would like to discuss arranging a funeral, pre-planning a funeral, monumental masonry and additional funeral services.
Funeral director Jodie says that Fuller and Scott’s way of thinking is ‘Because every life is unique’ and she believes in that wholeheartedly.
She says every funeral is different and there are many ways organising them to reflect individual personalities and the wishes of a family.
Increasingly popular ways of doing this include the choice of a picture coffin, which can reflect scenes and hobbies, green funerals and natural burials, personalised order of services and stationery, unique transportation, music and bands, the list is endless.
Fuller & Scott can guide and support you through the decisions that need to be made and assist in making all of the arrangements, such as venues, flowers, transportation, music, order of services, and catering.
Jodie said: “We have always been proud to be an active member of the Uckfield Community, supporting local charities in the area to help raise important funds.”
Recently passers-by were invited in for cakes and a cuppa to help with fund-raising for the Macmillan Coffee Morning and the company is a proud sponsor of the Uckfield Singers’ concert programmes annually.
Similarly at Christmas Fuller & Scott will have a Christmas tree in the window where people will be able to hang decorations and messages in memory of their loved ones.
The funeral directors will also be joining with St Wilfrid’s Hospice and helping to organise a Lights of Love and Remembering Loved Ones Departed service at Holy Cross Church on Wednesday, December 14, at 7pm.
The team likes to make themselves accessible, and will welcome anyone in, even for a chat and cup of tea, at their premises in Civic Approach, Uckfield.
