Roundhill Barn hosted two funeral events in Jan 2023, making the point that funerals and memorials can be more beautiful and memorable in a rural setting.
One was a Quaker Meeting with tea after the family had attended Haycombe Crematorium. The other was an attended Quaker funeral, after which close family and friends said farewell as a hearse carried the wicker coffin off into the sunset for unattended cremation.
We’re happy to host faith based memorial events, and also humanist and other secular life celebrations.
The key think is the funeral or memorial is a beautiful, quiet, unrushed event. These work very well in a simple barn with a beautiful view under a huge sky, no 45-minute deadline, and no religious or municipal imagery or clutter. We maintain the track to a standard that a hearse can navigate it without problem.
We’re happy to offer Roundhill Barn to ethical independent funeral directors and celebrants.
Contact us with any enquiries about funeral or memorial plans, particularly if Kelston Roundhill is special to you.
