Ravenoak Allington Road Newick BN8 4NB
“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.
Andrew, Roy’s son, joined the firm in the late 1970s. Together they continued to build on the foundations of the family firm, extending their services to cover the Mid Sussex area in the early 1980’s with new premises in Haywards Heath. Andrew’s wife, Julie joined the business in the late 1980’s. Over 100 years after the firm’s foundation, R. A. Brooks & Son is still a family run business.
We maintain our personal and friendly approach and pride ourselves on retaining our traditional values and high quality service. Roy, Andrew, Julie and the staff are here to help you, and to make a difficult time easier to cope with.”
