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.

Dear Jeremy, Nathan and the funeral boys,

Thank you for your kindness, patience, professionalism, your unswerving aplomb at our weird requests, and for your versatility in adapting to necessary last minute restrictions and changes due to Covid.

Above all though thank you for taking care of my dad,

Love

Thank you to all at Penrose for helping both of us through what could have been a difficult time under very trying circumstances.
The caring way you dealt with my Mother, Flossie’s funeral over the telephone, your kindness in fulfilling all our wishes and the respect and professionalism shown today made it a day we shall always treasure.
Thank you again,

I write to thank you all for your very excellent arrangement of Denzil’s funeral. Your calm, clear and efficient directions before, during and after the service have guided us through every stage. We are very grateful for all you have done for us at this sad time for us all.
