The Barsby Service

The Barsby Service Chapel was designed and built on site in Hinckley to allow you to have the funeral service in one place with complete flexibility to have the funeral you want, without the time restrictions.

There won’t be the uncomfortable situation where another funeral cortege is arriving as your family are leaving from the Service Chapel. The elegant Chapel can seat 55 people with further standing room available.

Your funeral service in The Barsby Chapel can be taken by officiants of all faiths or no faith at all, everyone is welcome. There is a high quality music system that can play any music of your choice. Personalised options, such as a pictorial slideshow of poignant photos, a pianist and live streaming or recording the service can also be incorporated. There is ample parking available in our free cark park located adjacent to the chapel. With it’s disabled access and dedicated lift, the Service Chapel is fully accessible to everyone.

Every service held in the Service Chapel includes complimentary teas and coffees before the funeral begins. A funeral reception with a comprehensive catering menu to suit your requirements in the adjacent Barsby Catering Suite can take place following the service.
