Funeral Services & Wakes
Finding a funeral hall for a service can be stressful at the best of times, but in the current climate constantly changing government guidelines make the process even more taxing.
Our Service Hall
Many families are now choosing to hold a service for a loved one in our dedicated service hall. By taking this option, the family can have a very personal funeral service in the style and of the length they wish. Our service hall features a music sound system, a screen to display favourite pictures and can comfortably accommodate up to 50 people. (At the time of writing, COVID restrictions only allow a maximum of 30 people to attend at any one time.)
The funeral service hall has a lovely personal memory area. The memory table and tree enable family and friends to share special moments they enjoyed together. It creates a focal point where guests can gather to share special stories. A memory jar is left out for guests to write down anecdotes, personal messages and tributes for the family to keep and treasure. We always add a framed photograph and Remembrance Candle to create a special place to celebrate the life of a loved one.
The other great benefit of using our service hall is that family and friends can stay together in the same place to hold a wake after the service. There’s no need for taxis or directions to a venue that some may not know.
We can also alleviate the stress of arranging the wake. Alongside the venue, our friendly team can sort out the food and drink and cater for any special requests, (such as serving a loved one’s favourite food). This way, the wake shouldn’t feel daunting to arrange. Let us worry about that . It’s so important for family and friends to celebrate the life of their loved one and catch up with people they may not have seen for many years.
Special Memory Boxes
Every family who holds a funeral service with us here receives a memory box. A memory box can be a great comfort for grieving family members. Alongside the funeral order of service, we can include personal items such as jewellery, sports memorabilia, photographs and videos. Priceless, personal memories.
As with all things relating to grief, there are no rules. You decide what the memory box should contain. It could be something innocuous – as long as the item reminds you of them and brings back those all-important memories of your time together.
