Providing Funeral Catering since 1992

Peter and Melanie Sutherns, along with their team, have been providing funeral catering at Keepers Cottage Lodge since 1992. Keepers Cottage is privately owned and is an in house catering venue which specialises in funeral catering. 

Located less than half a mile from Bretby Crematorium and situated on the A511 east of Burton upon Trent, we are the ideal licensed venue for such family gatherings.  Funerals are such a sad time, so our aim it to relieve you of some of the pressures of that day.  Both you and your guests are warmly welcomed and handled with sensitivity.

Our freshly prepared buffets include unlimited teas and coffees (for the numbers booked for) and the room hire is free of charge for 2 hours.  We allow around two hours from start to finish for such gatherings.  Longer time is possible, but this requires to be agreed at the point of booking.  There may be an additional room hire charge for extra time.  The cost per person is £10.50. with a minimum number for catering being 25 People. 

As we have two function rooms, the room allocated will be determined by the catering number booked for.

We provide funeral catering here Monday to Friday, and there is also the option of a Saturday.   

We also offer the service of co-ordinating with your chosen Funeral Company and the catering bill can be added to your account with them.  Or should you wish, you can book directly with us. 

We are proud to have been awarded 5 Stars under the Food Hygiene Rating Scheme.   

Please note that Assistance Dogs only are allowed into the venue.

Memorial Service "A Celebration of a Loved One's Life"

Keepers Cottage Lodge are pleased to offer an addition to their already existing funeral catering service.

A Memorial Event brings family and friends together.  Sometimes it is not always possible, perhaps due to time constraints, for guests to attend the funeral.  This seperate event allows for this and could be on a special day, for example the Loved One's next birthday.  It also allows people to celebrate the person's life in a more relaxed atmosphere than at the funeral.

The chosen day can be in the week, or on a Saturday or Sunday.  The cost per person is £10.50 with a minimum of 50 guests in attendance as this will be a private function.
