Outdoor Garden Service by Natural

Inclusive Garden Choice 

For a whimsical, gentle and natural farewell, the Partridge House Garden offers a shady elm and a relaxing, comforting atmosphere. It can feel more familiar than the cemetery chapels and ease you comfortably into a difficult, but necessary day.

All facilities are available at this location, including the slideshow presentation of photos and music which we build on your behalf, and you may hold onto as a keepsake.

Our funeral planning people work closely with you to optimise this experience and the celebrant will capture the essence of the person being celebrated and remembered.

Partridge House provides an excellent refreshment service in the gardens following the ceremony.
