From start to finish, Cara and the staff at Arka were amazing. We had a rough idea of what we wanted and Cara was able to advise and make suggestions that would fit in perfectly with the celebration that my sister would have wanted for her funeral. Nothing was too much trouble and the caring and sensitive way in which we were treated was really appreciated, especially with the initial contact and transport from the Hospice. A beautiful handmade wool cocoon shroud was used to pick up my sister, and then she stayed with Arka until the funeral. We were able to visit her at anytime, and she was looked after in the most caring way. My sister wanted a natural burial which was something new to us, and we couldn't have been more pleased with the day. Cara advised us about which celebrant would be most suited for our ceremony, who turned out to be another lovely person, and we felt so comforted by her words. A beautiful ceremony in the local chapel with lots of children, who sat and drew pictures that would be included with the coffin. The coffin was a natural cream wool casket, handmade and draped with informal fresh flowers. Arka organised photographs to be discreetly taken of the day, so that we would have memories for everyone to share. We have had so many people remark to us that this Arka funeral has completely changed the way they think a funeral should be and that they will be making their own arrangements along similar lines in the future. I cannot thank Arka enough for helping us plan and organise such a special day for my sister. It was beautiful.

I was overwhelmed by the courtesy and kindness i received from the ladies at Arka. The funeral arrangements ran like clockwork and the memorial service was everything i could have hoped for. I am so very glad that i chose Arka Original Funerals. It goes without saying that i would definitely recommend them to others.

About Us

Arka Original Funerals aims to ensure you feel comforted and reassured that the funeral will be appropriate, meaningful and right. With a focus on supporting you to be involved as you want to be, they will take care of other practical tasks with compassion and integrity.

The independent Brighton funeral directors have two funeral homes – on Surrey Street and at Islingword Road – both with parking available and accessible by public transport. It has a beautiful chapel of rest for quiet contemplation, while support is also available for those who would prefer that the person who has died spends time at home before their funeral.

Arka’s small and friendly team will help you to arrange a funeral that is personal, dignified and fitting – according to tradition, beliefs, or personal creed – whether that’s a ceremony of quiet remembrance, or a funeral celebrating the life of the person who has died.

They are on call to listen as well as provide practical support, to ensure that the funeral service reflects the life of the person who has died, and how much they meant to you.

This Brighton funeral home works with clients to accommodate budgets, keeping them informed and reassured. Many funeral choices and green options are available to make the funeral meaningful; from funeral venues, shrouds and coffins, to bespoke floral tributes, transport and tokens of memorial.

Arka Original Funerals offers continuing support to people through their bereavement, with a free monthly support group that all clients are warmly welcome to attend.
