Host a memorial service or event

Rent the Celebration Hall, Caradoc room, and courtyard

Let Mountain View Cemetery host your memorial service or special event in our Celebration Hall. Our contemporary event space and adjoining courtyard offer an excellent venue for many types of events. The peaceful setting creates an atmosphere of calm and comfort for your attendees.

Memorial services 

Our Celebration Hall has multiple spaces that can be used during your event and are fully wheelchair accessible. 

The spacious reception area offers an ideal area for your guests to gather and have refreshments. It also has a custom-built ledge to display photos of your loved one or lay out a registry book. Next to the reception area is a professional service kitchen for your catering arrangements.

The main event space – the light-filled Caradoc Room – is an elegant, spacious setting for services or events with a peaceful adjoining courtyard and pond. The built-in audio-visual system is ideal for photo and video tributes.

Our Celebration Hall also has a quiet, private family room with a separate entrance and its own courtyard.

Other events

We also offer our elegant and contemporary gathering place for events like weddings, community meetings, corporate retreats, and even birthday parties. Standard rental fees are the same as for memorials.
