Providing Funeral Catering since 1992

Under the guidance of Peter and Melanie Sutherns, Keepers Cottage Lodge is a privately owned, licensed, in house catering venue which specialises in traditional funeral catering.  Located on the A511 east of Burton upon Trent and less than halff a mile from Bretby Crematorium, we are the ideal venue for such family gatherings.     

Funerals are such a sad and difficult 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, allowing a fitting and respectful tribute that is deserved.

We offer buffet catering as it allows for families and their guests to talk and reminisce about their loved ones.  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 £10.95. 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.

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

Keepers Cottage Lodge are also 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 £10.95 with a minimum of 50 guests in attendance as this will be a private function.
