A Modern Funeral at Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park

When you wish for a funeral that is not held in a typical crematorium setting, White Rose Modern Funerals host beautiful funeral services at Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park. 

The picturesque location in a stunning listed Georgian Mansion with its natural light and panoramic views creates a whole different feeling, not typically associated with a funeral.

Families have privacy – there is non of the conveyor belt feel so often associated at a crematorium chapel.  Our approach to the service is elegant, non funereal and discreet, ensuring that at the saddest of times, beautiful memories are created that families find so comforting.

We create services for burial funerals here also. And have created many Memorial Services / Celebration of Life without a coffin present too.

How a funeral service at Pembroke Lodge works

To have the service and reception in one beautiful space makes planning so much easier for you and your guests.

The personalised online page we create with an RSVP makes organising really easy for you

Minimum seated attendance is 30, maximum 200 – we’ve held services here small and large, they are all beautiful

Typically families choose Pembroke Lodge as they don’t wish to go to a  crematorium. So the cremation is booked as a direct cremation, family don’t follow.  

However, if you wish to be at the crematorium, we arrange for a private farewell early the following morning.  With our approach, everything is flexible.

Pembroke Lodge is a fully licenced events venue, the room is hired for 4 hours. Their high standard in-house catering (starting from £12 per head) must be used.

There is ample parking and Richmond Station is a 10 minute taxi ride away.

Our personalised approach for a modern funeral service at Pembroke Lodge

  • Service time is unrestricted – typically around 50 minutes – but there is no limit
  • Typically we pre-place the coffin into the room before guests arrive – no formal procession or carrying in, instead, a private moment for family
  • The coffin stands elegantly on trestles in front of windows overlooking the stunning terrace
  • A playlist can play as guests gather which helps to create a warm and personal ambience
  • You can be creative with photo boards, flowers – one family recreated their garden scene!
  • There is a great space for musicians, singer or choir if desired
  • Live-streaming or video can be arranged if needed
  • The end of the service is typically managed discreetly so family have private time alone before the coffin is carried out, making this a private intimate moment – we talk all of this through with you
