A Celebration of Life In Berkshire

Celebration of Life is an increasingly popular alternative way of commemorating a loved one after their passing. It gives family and friends the opportunity to pay tribute by planning an event that reflects the life your loved one lived, while saying goodbye in a uniquely personal way.

Each Celebration of Life will be unique depending on your loved one’s personality and wishes. Here at Ditton Manor we can help you bring all this together, whether that be a casual, intimate gathering or a larger event. Our team will support you through the organisation and take good care of you and your guests on the day.
