Football plays a major role in many people’s lives, so it’s only natural that some families choose to incorporate a football theme into a loved one’s funeral service.

Derby County Football Club have partnered with Wathall’s to offer Derby County themed services for the club's most avid fans.

By choosing a Derby County themed funeral, you can honour the lifelong support your loved one had for their favourite Football Club. Wathall’s provide a variety of services to Derby County supporters and their families.

Wathall’s offer pictorial coffins, bespoke Derby County themed service sheets, scarves and ties for the coffin bearers. Floral tributes can also be themed in Club colours.

There is also the option to have a funeral cortege drive past Pride Park Stadium and stop at the main entrance if you wish.

After the funeral, catering packages within Pride Park Stadium are available for wakes and gatherings.

Family members can also have a memorial brick and option of interring ashes along with the memorial brick at Pride Park Stadium as well.

If you wish, Wathall’s can write your loved one’s name and a special message in the Pride Park ‘Book of Remembrance’ too.

Another service that Wathall’s offer is ‘Rams Remember’. A touching tribute where the name of your loved one can appear on the LED advertising boards surrounding the pitch at selected games.
