Funeral Receptions, Wakes & Ashes Ceremonies


Funeral Receptions, Wakes & Ashes Ceremonies



Funeral receptions offer family and friends a place to come together and talk about the person they loved, liked and admired in an informal setting. 

We offer the opportunity to meet after a funeral in a comforting setting on the beautiful River Severn. An open river is a lovely place for a group to release emotions and help everyone understand recent events.

Often people choose the funeral reception and ashes ceremonies on Sabrina because it holds happy memories for them. Examples include first meetings, engagements, weddings and anniversaries. For others, it's the dominance of the river in their life, and the beauty and joy that it gave them.
