Are you looking to celebrate the memory of your loved one.  We have provided a friendly, convenient and well-equipped place to hold a Wake, Memorial Party or Funeral Tea for many years. We understand how demanding and emotionally exhausting organising a funeral of a loved one can be. We know how important it is to have good parking, disabled access and facilities, a flexible space and a modern kitchen.

After the funeral or cremation it is a nice gesture to host a reception/wake for family and friends, the event can be as simple or fancy as you like, it is completely your choice. These events are often arranged at short notice and there are several options to think about. Firstly, consider the number of people you wish to invite, as this will provide the size of venue required. Will you require catering, bar or accommodation for relatives travelling a long way? Brushford Parish Hall can provide a venue that matches all your requirements, and has the local contacts to ensure a relaxed and dignified time for you and your guests attending the event. Always ask either the funeral director, a family member or friend to make an announcement letting people know where and when the event is taking place.

Funerals are now often less formal and becoming more personalised, and you may wish to bring a favourite CD of the deceased or a memorial DVD to play in the background. An open microphone session is also popular where loved ones can share memories or simply say a few words. The event is a send-off for someone very close to you, and you can include whatever feels right for you and your family.
