Celebration of Life at Fort Nelson

8 August 2017

After a funeral it is traditional to host a funeral reception/wake for family and friends. Fort Nelson offers the perfect place to bring together loved ones of the dearly departed in memory, respect and celebration of their life. Funerals are almost always solemn and emotional events, and whilst respects are paid and goodbyes are given, it is often the funeral reception that provides for comfort.

Fort Nelson is located only 1.6 miles from Portchester Crematorium, 8.5 miles from The Oaks Havant Crematorium and ideally located for all local churches. The Fort is one of six Palmerston forts, strategically positioned along the chalk ridge of Portsdown Hill, and is one of the best surviving examples of a 19th – century Victorian fort. It is set in over 19 acres of glorious Hampshire countryside and boasts spectacular views of Portsmouth Harbour, the Meon Valley and South Downs National Park. There is ample free car parking on –site.

Experienced staff will be on hand to provide support before and during the event to ensure the delivery of the required services and facilities. It is possible to include a special gun salute using one of the big guns on The Parade. There are a variety of food and beverage options available to suit all tastes, using only the freshest of ingredients and preparing everything on site to the highest standards. The Redan has a relaxed peaceful atmosphere and is the ideal location for your wake buffet or lunch as you reminisce.

 “People are still talking about the food, the spread was absolutely magnificent & incredible quality. It was truly amazing. The care and attention accorded to us made the occasion very special. Rather than feeling cold and soulless, the afternoon was enjoyable and friendly.”

“We know how the gusty weather nearly put an end to our gun salute and toast for my dad's wake and we are very, very grateful for your perseverance on our behalf to ensure it all happened the way we'd hoped. You only get one chance at these things and I can honestly say, with your assistance, it all exceeded our expectations and gave us great joy on such a sad day. My dad would have been very pleased with it all.”
