Coveted top awards have gone to independent funeral directors in Burwash and Heathfield.
C Waterhouse and Sons and Heathfield Funeral Service - owned and run by Dorothy Waterhouse and her son Timothy - have been trading from original premises in Burwash since 1926 and are also based in Hailsham Road, Heathfield.
After a rigorous day-long inspection, a top accreditation came from The Good Funeral Guide, aiming to promote consumer choice and drive up standards. Director Sean Martin said: “We are the only funeral director in the area to hold this accreditation. It’s a wonderful endorsement and should reassure and give cofidence to families who trust us with their relatives. “
