A funeral service outdoors in the grounds of Harbour View can be a very positive experience. There is something quite profound about being surrounded by the beautiful grounds and the sounds of nature while looking out over the views beyond on a pleasant day. We have a number of positions within the grounds, such as the stone henge and near the lake, which offer their own unique settings. However, as there can be no guarantees with the weather, there is some degree of risk involved. It may be possible to reserve one of our ceremony halls as a substitute should the weather do its worst.
There are a number of areas at Harbour View where a marquee can be erected to accommodate a funeral service. This may happen to be very close to a grave that is to be used for the burial, but not necessarily so. The size and type of marquee is selected subject to the needs to the day but 150 people can be accommodated.
