The gathering of family and friends following a funeral service is a significant occasion.
It provides a unique opportunity to remember the deceased person, and to exchange personal anecdotes and memories of events that may not have been shared before. These recollections and the sharing of them offer a starting point for the transition from grief to healing.
Furthermore, when individual mourners live far afield, such gatherings are imbued with even greater worth. Though undeniably sad in memorialising the loss of a loved one, they can also represent a welcome reunion of family and old friends.
Should you require help with organising a gathering after the service, Heritage Brothers Funeral Services can assist with venues and catering.
Melaleuca Station Memorial Gardens provides excellent facilities and professional catering in its Reflections Cafe overlooking the gardens for those wishing to offer their guests morning or afternoon tea after the ceremony. This venue is licensed and caters for up to 120 people with simple refreshments all the way up to a more comprehensive selection.
These are not only available for after-service catering but also available for services prior to burial.
The modern chapel at our Burleigh Heads location also offers professional catering services and facilities.
