For family and friends, a reception provides the opportunity to come together, find comfort, and celebrate the life of a loved one. Receptions are generally held when chapel service concludes, with graveside committal service to follow. 

Our new Topsail Road facility features a spacious and comfortably furnished dedicated reception centre where catering is available and alcoholic beverages may be served. We also provide a welcoming space for smaller receptions (50-75 guests) at our Freshwater Road facility, where we order sandwiches, cheese, fruit and desert trays, along with coffee and tea provided. 

Receptions are an increasingly popular choice, and at Carnell’s we are committed to ensuring your reception needs are attended to. Our compassionate staff are always on-site to see that your reception is handled with the utmost care and respect.
