On the front of the Lewes funeral home down by Caffyns, high up is a symbol, 3 pyramids and a scarab beetle, does anyone know what it means?

The Scarab beetle was the spiritual symbol of the God Ra. It represented eternal life.
It is a mystery as to why the Egyptians built pyramid shaped tombs, but some believe that the structure formed a staircase for the dead Kings' soul to climb on its way to heaven.
