The Good Funeral Weekender


The Good Funeral Guide presents... The Good Funeral Weekender!

We're delighted to invite you to a weekend showcasing the best of the UK funeral industry at the National Trust's Sutton House.  From brilliant funeral directors to artisan stonemasons, innovative coffin makers, memorial art workshops and woodland burial grounds, we've handpicked a selection of Good Funeral Guide recommended funeral services for you to experience.  Check out the hot pink hearse in Breaker's Yard!

Come along to see the Life. Death. Whatever. exhibition, which will be installed throughout the Tudor manor house alongside the funeral exhibition.  Visit the interactive coffin playroom, pay your respects at the LDW grave by Stoneletters and chat to some of the nicest people in the funeral industry.  

There'll be popup workshops and talks throughout the weekend. 

There'll also be deathly cocktails available from our afterlife themed bar in the Tudor Kitchen, and life affirming tea and cake in the Georgian Tea Room.
