Did you know that a funeral can literally be held anywhere? Unlike weddings, venues do not need to be licensed for funerals. A service in a church or a crematorium is generally limited to 45-60 mins. After the service mourners have to travel to another venue for the wake. There is a simple way to avoid this production line feeling and to give a family & friends more time to say goodbye and share their memories after the service. And that is to have the service AND the wake in the same place. We are blessed to have some beautiful venues in Wealden where funerals are held. The venue can be dressed to personalise the service for your loved one and an unrushed service can take place. After the service, we will take your loved one to the crematorium or a burial, whilst mourners stay at the venue to celebrate the life of that person. If family want to attend the committal at the crematorium or burial then this can be done. We are able to recommend local event planners and caterers.
Here are some local venues that we recommend:
