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.
