Hire an elegant function room at Lauderdale House for a funeral service, reception, wake or memorial. Our pretty park setting, peaceful atmosphere and experienced in-house catering partners will help you create the perfect event to contemplate and celebrate the life of your loved one alongside family and friends.


Situated amidst the peaceful and pretty gardens of Waterlow Park, Lauderdale House offers an elegant and refined setting for a memorial gathering, funeral service, reception or wake to celebrate the life of a loved one. The venue is a Grade II* listed historic house which runs as an arts centre as well as offering charming private function rooms for hire for important family events.

The Lauderdale House team have many years' experience of hosting funeral services, receptions and wakes, and are more than happy to organise private functions at short notice - subject to availability - working with you to make sure everything runs smoothly on the day. We are a short distance from Golders Green Crematorium, making Lauderdale a natural choice of venue for local funerals. The house makes an ideal option if you are looking for a venue with dignity, elegance and history without religious associations. Our function rooms all have views out across the park and our in-house caterers will take care of providing food and drink for your guests.

"The reception went really well, everyone enjoyed being in the house, it was the perfect location... Your team were so lovely and couldn’t have done more for us. I really appreciated the care the team took to make sure everyone was well looked after. They were all very attentive and very professional." - Tash, funeral reception
