Frequently Asked Questions

We get asked many questions about our funeral wake catering services. We’re happy to answer all of these so that you’re informed and confident.

What is a Wake?

A wake funeral is a social gathering event often synonymous with a viewing that allows mourners to say goodbye, offer condolences and share their grief. A wake is generally less structured than a funeral and gives everyone in attendance the opportunity to feel involved.

Are Wakes Held Before or After a Funeral?

People sometimes mistakenly believe that a wake is after a funeral. On the contrary, a wake usually takes place before a funeral. The amount of time beforehand can vary from several days to as little as several hours. Our venue can hold each function on the same day if desired.

How Do You Organise a Wake Funeral?

Organising a wake event requires sensitivity and patience. It should be treated and handled with the utmost respect for the deceased and their loved ones. It’s important to ensure that the catering and any entertainment is appropriate for the occasion. The deceased may also have expressed wishes which should be included and honoured as much as possible.
