Catering and venues

After the funeral service itself, a wake is often arranged by the family of the deceased. This provides an opportunity for those who have attended the funeral to afterwards collectively celebrate the life of the person who has died, and to reflect on happy memories.

Wakes typically are held either in the home of an immediate family member or at a venue such as a local community hall or public house which have adequate space and facilities for those attending.  

If the wake is to be held at home, it is common to invite a local catering company to assist with the food and drink. Similarly, catering companies can assist at venues where no in-house catering facilities are provided. We can provide you with suggestions of local catering companies and venues, and provide guidance on what else you should consider when planning the funeral.
