Funeral Receptions

A Celebration of Life

Grief is the natural reaction to losing a loved one…. but grieving is also the road to healing from a loss.
The funeral helps facilitate this process. It helps loved ones face the reality of loss.
It helps them to say goodbye… Saying farewell doesn’t have to be a time of only sadness, but a time to celebrate a Unique Life and the imprint it has left on those who shared it!

Durham Masonic Hall can offer a traditional service for those who prefer the customs and practices which are familiar to them and their loved ones, or perhaps a more alternative package can also be tailored to reflect the unique personality of your loved one! You may wish to hold a memorial event such as a Farewell Party or Celebration of your loved one’s life. This can be a wonderful and memorable way to pay tribute to them.

Any Celebration involves good food, good friends and family, and above all happiness. It is a time for exchanging stories about your loved one – sometimes serious stories and sometimes humorous ones. For some people, it becomes a chance to counter balance the sorrow of losing a loved one with the joy of having been lucky enough to have had that special person in your life.

Of course somber moments will be part of any Celebration of Life—but they are only a part of the day!

We can offer a way to say goodbye with dignity and respect but also a way to remember the times that you were lucky enough to share with that special person.
Remember there is no right or wrong way to do this difficult task … Let your heart guide you and if you need a little help we are here every step of the way. Sit down and share the person you knew with us and tell us how you wish to create a memorable occasion. 

We have put together a  menu to choose from, in the hope of making this difficult time a little easier.
Our bar can be open if required and our private gardens are available.
