The Good Funeral Guide 2024

We're proud to share some exciting news with our community. Following being recently nominated for two categories in the ADFG Good Funeral Awards: Funeral Director of the Year and Green Company of the Year, we have also been recommended in The Good Funeral Guide. These achievements are a testament to our team’s dedication to providing memorable, personalised funeral services that minimise our impact on the planet.

The Good Funeral Guide is an independent resource that recognises trusted organisations in the funeral industry. Being recommended by the guide is a great honour for us. It acknowledges our team’s hard work, our innovative approach to funerals, and our dedication to the families we serve.

Towners is a name that's been part of East Sussex since 1875. Over the years, we've remained a family-run business, with the Towner family at the helm for six generations. Our approach to funeral services is deeply rooted in understanding and respecting the wishes of the families we serve, ensuring that every funeral is unique and meaningful.

We’ve always believed in the importance of evolving and adapting to meet new possibilities within our industry, and this is where our focus on sustainability comes into play. We're proud to be part of leading the way in the funeral industry by introducing paperless operations, using sustainable energy sources in our electric vehicles, and offering eco-friendly options such as green burials and funerals.

Being a long-standing business in the community, we understand the importance of tradition. However, we also recognise the need for change and innovation. Our approach to funerals combines the best of both worlds: honouring traditions while embracing new, innovative practices. This balance allows us to provide services that are respectful, meaningful, and in tune with the times.

We believe that awards such as these are not just a recognition of our efforts but also an encouragement to continue pushing the boundaries of what's possible in the funeral industry. It's about challenging the status quo and finding new ways to serve our community better, all while respecting the environment and the wishes of the families who trust us during their most challenging times. We're grateful for the recognition and inspired to continue our work, always with the aim of providing compassionate, personalised, and sustainable funeral services. Thank you to the Good Funeral Guide, and to everyone who has supported us on this journey. We look forward to continuing to serve our community with the same dedication and care that have been the hallmarks of Towners for nearly 150 years.
