Memorial Receptions

Memorial Receptions

Most families want the opportunity to gather immediately after the funeral service to continue the sharing of  memories at a local restaurant, hotel, catering hall, church, or private residence. Bradley Funeral Homes is fully equipped to assist your family in arranging  all aspects of the memorial reception.

Our Memorial Reception Services are a turn-key operation offering numerous benefits. Your Bradley Funeral Service Provider will:

  • Save you time so you can attend to other family matters
  • Save you money using an “in-network” restaurant or caterer
  • Receive and set up food & beverages while you are attending services
  • Select the appropriate menu and venue
  • Accommodate special dietary needs
  • Manage your budget
  • Estimate the number of guests
  • Act on your behalf as main point of contact
  • Take care of venue payment (including gratuities)
  • Provide printed and easy-to-read directions
  • Greet you at reception to direct and personally introduce you to venue staff

Our families find tremendous value in this service. Allow us to make this difficult time not only manageable, but also memorable.
