What is the cost of The Simple Funeral at Woodvale Crematorium and what is included in the service?


A Simple Funeral at Woodvale crematorium at a time and day of your choice is currently £2495 fully inclusive of all costs. The cost of a funeral is made up of three elements: our services; a coffin; and disbursements.

The price breakdown is as follows. 


Our Services £1095 which includes:

  • bringing your loved one into our care from a hospital within a 20 mile radius of Worthing. Extra mileage will be charged accordingly. Bringing your loved one into our care from anywhere other than a hospital (i.e. from home, a nursing home or a hospice) will incur an additional fee of £250.

  • Arranging a time and day convenient to you for the funeral.

  • the provision of a black hearse and four pallbearers.

  • The attendance of your personal Funeral Director throughout proceedings to ensure the smooth running of events.

  • a personal interview to receive your instructions at our premises or your home.

  • guidance on the Registration of Death.

  • completion of all legal necessities and documentation relating to the funeral on your behalf.

  • 24 hour support and assistance up to the time of the funeral.

  • Collection of floral tribute cards.

  • Distribution of floral tributes within a 5 mile radius.

  • Receipt, listing and distribution of charitable donations.

  • Arrangement of press notices.

  • provision of your loved ones' ashes in a functional container.


A coffin £295

  • Provision of a light oak effect coffin, fully lined and fitted, up to and including 6' 4'' x 24'' x 14'' (L x W x D).

Disbursements £1105 (third party payments paid on your behalf) which includes:

  • A religious, non-religious, or semi-religious service conducted by either a Minister, a Priest, a Humanist, or a celebrant (£250).

  • All Doctors' fees paid on your behalf (2 x £82 each= £164). If referred to the Coroner, deduct £164.

  • All Crematorium fees at Woodvale crematorium paid on your behalf (£691).


Therefore as an example, a dignified cremation at 12 noon at Woodvale crematorium, Brighton on a Friday with a hearse and pallbearers, an oak-effect coffin and a celebrant to conduct a semi-religious service would cost a total of £2495.

What our customers say

Karen Healey

Rounce Funeral Services Limited are an independent family run professional funeral directors with a wealth of experience in dealing sensitively with grieving families on the loss of their loved ones. They were very respectful and fantastic when my father passed away and I couldn't thank them enough. We came all the way from Brighton to use them after we had had some great comments from people we know from Worthing and we were not disappointed with the service received. The actual funeral day ran very smoothly thanks to their careful consideration of our family's need. They even helped our wheelchair bound mother down a couple of steps in her wheelchair. Their arrangements are very reasonable without skimping on what is available. I cannot praise them highly enough and will be recommending them to others. They do funerals all over Sussex I believe as our funeral took place in Brighton. Well done for remaining independent yet not compromising on the service provided.

Ruby Gibbens


Its so easy to write a positive review for Rounce who helped make a direct funeral for Joyce, a dear friend of ours. Penny was particularly reassuring, took time to explain all the options and listened carefully to what it was Joyce wanted and then arranged everything to give us the least stress and upset as possible. Needless to say when Joyce was able to be taken to Rounce's, they did an amazing job in preparing Joyce, she looked so peaceful and so well cared for. We would be very happy to recommend Rounce to anyone who requires funeral services. It's so good to know in times that are difficult, Rounce is a company that genuinely care about its customers.

Woodvale Crematorium, Brighton - general information


Built originally in 1856 and refurbished most recently in 2013, Woodvale crematorium is situated in a residential area close to the centre of Brighton.

The address and telephone number is:


Woodvale Crematorium

Lewes Road
East Sussex

01273 604020


Woodvale Crematorium in Brighton is set within many acres of cemetery and as well as having a first class music system, they are able to set your photographs to music to play a visual tribute on the TV screen.

There are two chapels, the North Chapel and South Chapel which are either side of the main crematorium building and which both seat approximately 80 people. Unlike the South Chapel, The North Chapel is consecrated and features a stained-glass window and altar.

The Woodvale Crematorium and chapels are located in 20 acres of cemetery. The area around the chapels has been landscaped with lawns, waterfall and stream, flower beds and rockeries, to provide a peaceful environment for funerals.

The North and South Chapels are adjacent to the crematorium building and located approximately quarter of a mile up the drive from the main Lewes Road gates. 

Woodvale's main entrance is located about a mile from the city centre, on the Lewes Road (A270), Brighton, on the side of the road headed towards the city centre. Unless you need the Extra-Mural chapel, use the main gate. There is sign-posting from all directions. A useful landmark near the main entrance is a yellow painted public house called The Gladstone. A Sainsbury's supermarket is opposite.

The Extra-Mural Chapel, which is also used for services sometimes, is in the Extra-Mural Cemetery and cannot be accessed from the main Woodvale gate. There is a separate sign posted gate earlier up the road, opposite the BP petrol station.

The gardens are open 365 days a year.
