Ballard & Shortall Funeral Directors in Mid-Sussex and Surrey

Ballard & Shortall offer funeral directors in Crawley, Horsham, East Grinstead, Horley and Forest Row. Our history just about creeps into the 19th century, with our founding in 1899 on Three Bridges Road. Since then, we’ve worked with thousands of local families. We’ve even assisted with funeral arrangements for the much-loved children’s author, AA Milne.

Ballard & Shortall brings together some of the best-respected funeral providers from the local area. Our Principal Funeral Director, Clare Shortall-Emery and Funeral Director, David Holmden work tirelessly to ensure that our name is top of the list when it comes to funeral directors in Sussex.
