Diploma in Funeral Arranging

Anita Franklyn

Bexhill Office Manager, Funeral Director and Head of Training and Development

Anita’s first experience within the funeral industry was working at  Eastbourne Crematorium. Moving on from there, she became a Funeral Arranger / Conductor within a small independent funeral directors in Eastbourne. During her time there she gained valuable experience. She then had the opportunity to take up her current position as Funeral Director with Towners.

Anita is extremely passionate about her responsibilities and believes it is very important to ensure every individual is treated with compassion, care and dignity.

She is a mum to two grown up daughters and is a very proud Nana. Since her own children flew the nest she is now ‘human mummy’ to her two fur babies, Eric and Elsie the Maltese Terriers. She says she is (and so are they!) extremely lucky to be able to bring them to work every day. They love it and so do many visitors!


Angela Croft

Funeral Director

Born and raised in Bexhill-on-Sea, Angela lives there with her husband and two daughters. On leaving school Angela worked in the family print business for over 34 years, predominantly in the pre-press and graphic design department.

After the business was sold she found employment briefly at Bexhill College before being accepted at Towners in May 2017 to produce artwork for clients' service sheets, eventually moving into the role of Funeral Director.

Angela is very keen on sports and is a member of a local Run & Triathlon Club, particularly enjoying swim and cycling events. With a UK Athletics Run Coaching qualification she volunteers twice a week to coach the 8-16yrs Club runners. 

Spare time is spent with her family and she enjoys watching films, reading, listening to a wide range of music and, during the football season, enduring the peaks and troughs of being an Arsenal supporter.
