Bereaved families will have the option of being served by a new funeral home, which has opened in Horsham town centre.
The Co-operative Funeralcare on East Street, which opened last month, features a remembrance room, an arranging room and reception area.
It has all been decorated in warm, pastel colours in a bid to make the funeral home more welcoming and less intimidating.
Supporting families will be funeral director Angela Spencer, who lives locally.
Angela, who has ten years of experience in the profession, sits on the board of examiners for the National Association of Funeral Directors.
