R A Brooks & Son

35 Wivelsfield Road, West Sussex, Haywards heath, RH16 4EN

Welcome to R A Brooks & Son - Independent, family owned funeral service.

The Brooks family business has been established in Newick since the late 1880s when J. A. Brooks and his sons began their building and undertaking firm. The business was run as a family concern. Tragedy struck the family during World War One when two sons were killed and one was left injured.

The war took its toll on the family, as it did with so many at that time, and when J. A. Brooks died in 1927, his surviving son Fred continued the business.

In 1946 Fred's son Roy joined his father in the running of the business until Fred's death nineteen years later. After this the building side of the business was disbanded and Roy concentrated solely on funeral directing.

We wish to maintain our caring, personal and friendly approach. We pride ourselves on retaining our traditional values combined with a high quality of service. Andrew, Julie and the staff are here to help and guide you through all the arrangements and to make a difficult time easier to cope with.
