The Mill provides a funeral reception service in two ways:

  • Room hire and catering: The Garden Room at the hospice is available to hire with seating for around 50 guests. The James de Lostock room upstairs at the café is available to hire with seating for up to 40 guests. Both benefit from extensive, complimentary parking and a fully licensed bar is also available.
  • Catering only: The Mill Outside catering service can deliver your chosen menu to a venue of your choice in the community

Along with exceptional quality and a personal service, using The Mill also gives you the unique opportunity to contribute to the work of St Catherine’s Hospice. All proceeds raised through our funeral receptions service are used to fund the specialised care the charity provides in the Central Lancashire community.
