We understand that losing a loved one is always a difficult time. Allow us to support you by providing a tranquil and intimate environment for you and your guests to remember your loved one and reflect upon treasured memories and to celebrate their life.

We offer our Orchard Suite for your gathering, with seating for up to eighty people and our adjoining marquee for larger numbers. Our stunning grounds provide a peaceful and fitting backdrop for this delicate occasion. Our team will all assist in making the day a fitting tribute for your loved one.

Catering and menu options are available to suit your requirements. We are more than happy to include bespoke requests for themes, decorations or cakes that evoke particularly fond memories.

Family and friends are welcome to bring photographs, collages, albums or slide shows of their memories that can be displayed in the Orchard Suite, and favoured music to be played through our state of the art audio system. For any other special requests that you may have, we will do our very best to help.

Celebration of Life

At The Limes, we can provide the facilities that you need if you are planning a Celebration of Life. We work with some of the most well-known funeral directors in Solihull and have a great deal of experience in planning these events.

A change of focus

Today, people mark the passing of their loved ones in many different ways, including not only funerals, but wake celebrations, memorial services and Celebrations of Life too. The Celebration of Life has become considerably more common over recent years. A Celebration of Life tends to be less formal than a funeral, giving guests and loved ones time to reflect within our peaceful countryside setting.

What does a Celebration of Life entail?

One of the most frequently cited reasons for holding a Celebration of Life is that it encourages people to think less about their grief and more about the positive aspects of a person’s life. People attending the service might share their experiences and memories with friends and relatives. They might comfort each other and talk about the way they are feeling.

No strict guidelines

Many people request that a Celebration of Life is held before they pass away. They might regard the tone of a conventional funeral as too sombre and inappropriate. Sometimes, a Celebration of Life is held alongside a funeral, but it’s now increasingly common for it to take place in place of one. A Celebration of Life can take place in all sorts of locations, with The Limes becoming an increasingly popular venue option over recent years. There are no strict guidelines to follow – A Celebration of Life ceremony can take whichever form you would like, and we would be happy to do the best we can to accommodate this.

Other features of a Celebration of Life service

Services often include speakers, music, refreshments and the sharing of mementoes like photo albums, personal items and scrapbooks. Guests may be given a memorial booklet that outlines the schedule of the service. A memory table is often present, and video slideshows may be shown. Keepsakes are often distributed, and balloons are sometimes released. Attendees may also sign a guestbook. Most importantly, the ceremony is centred around taking time to reflect.
