I have known Paul Sullivan and his staff for about 7 years, from when I worked at Hawkinge Crematorium. My Father... passed away on the 26th August 2018 and I cannot thank them enough, for the kind way they looked after Myself and my family. I knew Dad was in the most capable hands and was well cared for. We took out a Prepaid Funeral Plan, so the sad business of arranging the Funeral, had already taken place. I would highly recommend Paul and his staff; Julie, Alex and Colin. Lovely Caring and always on the end of the phone if needed. A lovely gesture a courtesy phone call, a couple of weeks after the Funeral, to check how I was coping.read more

I have known of Sullivan and Son for over ten years and they were the unquestionable choice to conduct my mother's... funeral in January 2018 when she died aged 101. I had one meeting with Alex Sullivan to set things in motion and was most impressed with his unpretentious and efficient handling of all the necessary details. Alex and Paul Sullivan (who officiated at the funeral) are warm, compassionate, obliging and, quite simply, very likable personalities. I could not have been more satisfied with their service.read more

Paul and the team were awesome in how they handled my sisters funeral. They were kind,attentive and highly professional... in all their dealings with my entire family. Au unexpected death is always going to be difficult - the cremation most of all,but Paul helped us through the whole event with calm and good humour - nothing was too much trouble Thank you once again Paul and team - I cannot recommend this service too highlyread more
