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.
