Funeral Directors in Burwash

C. Waterhouse & Sons

C. Waterhouse & Sons have been Funeral Directors in Burwash for many years now. During this time, we have helped & guided families through the emotional process of organising a funeral. We have in fact organised funerals for many generations of family around Burwash, as well as right across the South East of England.

Dorothy Waterhouse began helping her father with running C. Waterhouse & Sons in her early 20’s. As her father approached retirement Dorothy took on more of the work, from cleaning cars, to doing the accounts as well as everything in between. Dorothy’s overriding ethos, which still permeates every fibre of the business today, is to care for families and to support their individual wishes and arrangements. These high standards are also upheld at our other office, Heathfield Funeral Service.

Why are we different?

We are fully dedicated to providing a service for you, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. There will always be someone on call, whatever time of day it is, to speak with you when needed. At such a difficult time, C. Waterhouse & Sons will be there for you, to gently walk you and your family through the different stages of a funeral. Most people do not know what needs to be done when a loved one passes away; we hope to help make this all a little bit easier for you.

There are many aspects of what we do that is unique and we are extremely proud of this. It is important to understand that certain aspects of arranging a funeral are carried out in different ways, by different companies.
