Below is a selection of wake venues and caterers that are available in South East Essex. Clearly there are many more choices available, but these are popular venues that we have heard good reports about and that we have visited and checked out personally. We have tried to include a range of pricing and capacities while listing venues that offer a professional service and a pleasant environment. We have included contact details as wake venues are typically arranged directly by the family and not by the funeral director.

 

We do not receive a commission or finders fee from any of the venues that we recommend. All recommendations are based on reputation and personal experience.

Testimonials

Nathan, Jeremy and the Penrose Team,

​My wife, myself and our family would like to say a heartfelt thank you for the wonderful service we received from Penrose. We could not have asked for kinder or more helpful people and certainly everyone who attended David’s funeral gave high praise indeed to the whole event.​

I cannot recommend Penrose highly enough on the amazing service provided and wish you all the very best in the future.

Steve and Brenda Bester - December 2017

To all the team at Penrose,

Thankyou so much for the dignified way that you conducted my husband’s funeral. It was all I could have wished for under difficult circumstances.

Also for the kind and caring attitude you all had towards myself and my family,

Thank you once again,

Frances Curtis - January 2021

To all at Penrose Funerals,

Please accept my thanks for the sensitive and professional way in which you carried out my mother’s funeral arrangements. My brothers and I were also extremely happy with the way everything went on the day.

Thank you

Simon Jarvis - April 2020

Dear Nathan, Jeremy and everyone and Penrose,

Thank you so much for looking after my son – Thomas Street – while he was in your care. The past few weeks have been so distressing but you made organising the funeral so much easier than I thought it would be.

I am especially grateful for the visits that you organised for me, especially the final one. I am also very grateful to Jeremy for your kind words on the day of the service.

I am so pleased that we chose to bring Tom to you. You have made my darkest times a little brighter.

From

Claire – and all of Tom’s family - March 2020

I am writing on behalf of my son Steven and myself to say thank you for the dignified and respectful way you conducted the funeral of my late partner Derek.

It was greatly appreciated

Yours sincerely
