The Flower Rooms is situated within the grounds of Gilroes Cemetery, primary serving visitors to the cemetery. It is set in the beautiful area at the Groby Road entrance to Gilroes. Work began in early 2014 to renovate the listed building, this involved keeping the buildings character and also bringing back to life the walls and paths nearby. The work was finally completed in 2015 and the shop began trading in August 2015.
Our aim for The Flower Rooms & The Lodge is to provide a beautiful starting point in Gilroes cemtery for visitors coming to pay their respects or on their regular travels to visit loved ones. To create a tranquil and welcoming atmosphere for friends and relatives to meet and walk up to the Gilroes Chapels.
At The Flower Rooms you can choose from a wide range of stunning, seasonal bouquets hand made by our florists, order online before 1pm for next day flower delivery. We use only the freshest flowers, conditioned by hand and kept fresh in our coolers to ensure they last longer for you, at home. Every flower arrangement is a unique creation with a hand picked, fresh collection of blooms. All our beautiful flowers and arrangements can be viewed in our main shop floor as you turn left into the florist. We also have our florist appointment room in the centre of the building next to The Lodge which caters for appointments for any bespoke or special occasion floral arrangements you may need.
The Flower Rooms florist delivers beautiful, fresh, luxury blooms throughout the UK, with a variety of delivery options to suit your needs.
We also offer the free plot delivery service, LOROS delivery and Glenfield Hospital delivery which can be all processed online for any occasion where you are unable to make it. Please view our Delivery Options section for more information.
Our team are dedicated to source only the finest quality flowers, our senior florists then hand arrange and beautifully gift pack your gift to maximise the impact of your thoughtful gesture. We send your flowers with our carefully selected couriers or hand deliver throughout Leicestershire.
We also offer a Date Reminder Service which takes the stress out of shopping for flowers and can cover every occasion you have, whether it is a birthday, anniversary to simply a special date you have with a loved one.
Tell us the dates and occasions you would like to be reminded of and we will send you an email reminder two weeks before. We will even include our top gift recommendations from our collections to make giving the perfect gift even easier.
Add as many occasions as you like when you subscribe to our Newsletter. You can add recurring dates like birthdays and anniversaries and we will remember them for you year after year until you tell us otherwise.
Originally designated to be completely a florist, we had requests within the grounds to also open partly as a cafe to cater for the large amount of visitors coming to pay their respects and arriving early. This is where the Lodge was born.
The small lovely cafe is an addition to the The Flower Rooms and provides nibbles and beautiful choice of drinks to cemetery visitors and visitors to the florist.
The Lodge is conveniently positioned at the start of the cemetery, with two parking spaces. The aim for The Lodge is to provide visitors a good experience on either their travels to pay respects or their regular visit to loved ones. We strive to make every visit to Gilroes a lovely experience from the start. With a few regulars making a stop first at our lovely cafe for a warm drink, a little gift at the florist and then a beautiful walk up to the Chapels and main cemetery through the beautiful grounds.
It is the meeting place in Gilroes for family, friends and couples – in short, a place for everyone from early morning coffees to evening nibbles.
The Lodge also offers a free delivery service up to the Chapels or locals. Also you can place orders online and set a collection time, perfect for anyone on a tight schedule or to ensure everyone has a drink.
