Our primary venue, the Ferry Park Chapel seats 180 and has room for overflow if required. The space features a tranquil, garden and water feature outlook. The space can be modified to better accommodate smaller gatherings and personal touches can be added, if required.
Bell, Lamb & Trotter Funeral Directors is situated at 297 Ferry Road, Christchurch. Operating from the Ferry Park Chapel, we are centrally located with ample off-street parking. The central city, eastern cemeteries and crematories are in close proximity. However, we serve the whole of Canterbury and Banks Peninsula and even assist families internationally when death has occurred away from the country of residence. Services may be held in a variety of locations and venues including our chapel, either of the crematorium chapels, churches, halls, gardens, clubs and homes.
Our chapel comfortably seats 180 people with additional seating in the lounge for a further 70, plus standing room for over 200. In 2003 the Chapel had a major facelift and was refurbished again in 2020. The Chapel was redesigned and now attendees have a restful water feature and a garden view to reflect on. We provide ample off-street parking.
An up-to-date audio system enables us to play personally selected music during a service. We are also able to live-stream funerals or audio and video record services for family and friends who are unable to attend. We are able to provide refreshment in the chapel foyer and portico, enabling families and friends to spend valuable time together without the burden of catering.
We have an adjoining catering lounge that overlooks our garden setting and the large, private carpark that can accommodate approximately 60 cars. We are well-known for the high quality of catering we provide at our venues.
