Memorials and Wakes at Cambridge Rugby Club, Ellgia Fields. ​

At Cambridge Rugby Club, we have team dedicated to making sure your event is excatly as you want it.

With more and more people opting for private funerals or direct cremations, there has been a large increase in the number of families who want to remember a loved one with a wake or memorial service after the event.

This can be an opportunity to have a short ceremony, where friends and family have the chance to speak about their loved on, as well as a chance to share memories and celebrate someone’s life.

Cambridge Rugby Club can host your event – we have our own in-house celebrant who will help you prepare any formal elements of your ceremony, orders of service and other items, while our team can also organise catering and refreshments.

Ellgia Fields, the home of Cambridge Rugby Club, offers three flexible spaces for your memorial or wake:

  • The Turnstone Suite is upstairs, with a private bar, and capacity to comfortably seat 160 guests for dining, or up to 200 for a standing reception, this versatile space is perfect for a large or formal event.
  • For smaller and less formal events, the Shaun Gadsby Bar downstairs has much to offer. With access to the outdoors, you can enjoy the best of both worlds – an inviting indoor setting with the option to spill out onto the fresh air.
  • We also have the most amazing outdoor space, suitable for marquees large and small, indoor or outdoor ceremonies.
