Making preparations for the reception

As funeral directors, it is our honour and duty to assist the families of the deceased in organising everything associated with the final send off. We are a family business with a base in Sutton Coldfield, so we understand the feelings that you are going through at these difficult times. Whether you just need help with one aspect or planning entire funerals, rest assured that you will have our full support.

Post-funeral receptions are the perfect way for families to come together and spend time with one another following the service see here now. Here they can support each other in their grief and even share moments of laughter when bringing up all the wonderful memories of the deceased. At receptions, the atmosphere is more casual, giving everyone a better chance to connect and reflect.

Choosing where to host the event is a crucial part of the planning process. Receptions can be held at a restaurant, an event space, in a place of worship, a village hall or, if you much prefer, a family member or friend’s home. During the process of deciding where to have it, think about those places most special to the family and yourself. As long as you believe that your venue will be meaningful and comfortable, it will be the ideal choice.

In terms of refreshments, it’s common to opt for food and drinks that have already been prepared. Some people do opt for a sit-down meal but in many cases buffet and finger food is the chosen option. We are fully capable of providing catering services for you if you so desire, organising them to suit different venues. If there are any special requests, we will do our best to meet your requirements.

At Darren W. Faragher, if you would prefer to discuss specifics in the comfort of your own home as opposed to our office in Sutton Coldfield, we would have no trouble in sending one of our funeral directors to you. We promise that we’ll do everything in our power to give your loved one the tribute they deserve. If there’s anything we can do for you regarding funerals, please let us know.
