Venue after the funeral

It is usual for people to hold some sort of social gathering after the funeral itself. It is a good opportunity to share memories with family, friends and colleagues; it is not uncommon for people to share laughter too because these occasions can be a great diffuser of heightened emotion.



Located at our head office in Northfield we have ‘The Ivy Suite’ which is our own function suite; this air conditioned room is often hired out for post funeral receptions. We can offer a great range of buffet and sit down menu options, with a license to serve alcohol too. The Ivy Suite is fully accessible for those with disabilities and can cater for up to 80 people; we’d be delighted to show you around if you’d like to see it.

We are also happy to recommend other venues that cater for after funeral receptions, so please feel free to ask us for more details.

If you prefer to have a gathering at home after the funeral, but would prefer not to have to deal with any catering arrangements yourself, why not let our caterers do the job for you. What’s more, they will bring their own crockery, cutlery and glasses so you won’t need to lift a finger after what is likely to be an emotionally tiring day. Just call us on 0121 476 9111 to discuss your requirements.

Home sitting service

If you have concerns about leaving your home unoccupied whilst you are attending the funeral service, we can make a member of our home sitting service available to you. Please call us on 0121 476 9111 for more information.
