At Rothamsted Manor, we understand that the loss of a loved one can be a difficult time. If you are looking to arrange a wake, funeral reception, memorial, or celebration of life, we are here to help. We offer a sensitive and compassionate service, giving you one less thing to worry about during a time which can be very painful and stressful.

We offer exclusive hire of our stunningly beautiful Grade 1 listed Manor House, which is set in acres of Hertfordshire woodland with beautiful surrounding gardens and scenery. Our Great Drawing Room is the perfect setting for an afternoon tea or buffet for up to 100 people, freshly prepared by our in-house chefs, with bar facilities available. There are boards and easels available to display special photos and memories of your loved one, tables for memory books or charitable collection boxes, appropriate background music and a range of trusted florists for you to liaise with if you wish.

Rothamsted Manor is situated within a 30-minute drive of West Herts, Vale, and Harwood Park crematoriums, as well as many other places of worship, and is close to good travel networks for guests who may be travelling, and we offer free parking.
