The Carlton is partnering with William Pearce & Son, local funeral directors, and offering a new way
to say goodbye to a loved one.
You can now bring together family and friends in an informal space. Celebrate their passing in a
warm, professional and friendly environment, whilst ensuring the service is respectful to the
Our alternative funeral service has been developed with these principals in mind.
Timely. After your loved one has passed the timeline can be often dependent on external factors like
the availability of Barnstaple Crematorium or booking a church service. Using our venue will permit
much more freedom to quickly plan and deliver the funeral.
Flexible. When planning your service at The Carlton, you can truly make the event unique. Not being
in a formal setting means friends and family may be more relaxed, and able to participate in the send
off in a much more natural way. The deceased may have had exact plans for a send off and we are
able to help you plan and deliver these.
Unique. An alternative end-of-life celebration service could include an official celebrant, minister or
officiant, to lead the event, or a completely free flowing event. With use of digital displays, music and
even web broadcast to family and friends who cannot attend in person. You can decorate and
personalise your funeral space if you wish.
Cost. In the current climate with inflationary pressure on all our budgets, William Pearce & Son have
developed a fully costed plan, with funeral room hire at The Carlton included.
