Funeral Wake

For those who have experienced a bereavement we offer a sensitive, caring and considerate service to help you with the organisation of a Wake.

Planning a wake for a loved one after the funeral service can be a traditional or unique affair and our team at Blunsdon House Hotel can assist in helping you to make it as personalised as you need it to be. Whether you choose a wake steeped in custom or simply a casual get-together, we understand it is a time to bring extended families together to say goodbye to a loved one.

A wake can be either a public or private event, and if you are organising one you will need to know what your expectations are for family, friends and acquaintances and how you want it to be organised. Our team are experienced and can help you in choosing the most appropriate event room depending on the number of guests you are expecting.

We can help you decide the amount and type of food you wish to serve , you may choose to serve your loved one’s favourite food and drink to your guests.

We have found that for some people wakes are changing and becoming more of a celebration of life, some people may choose to organise entertainment such as music, a singer or band, slide shows, photographs – Some people choose to display photographs of their loved one or have a slide show, something we will help you to do.

We can discuss how much you want to spend and help to advise on approximate costs, remaining transparent and sensitive throughout, we want you to feel reassured and supported throughout this difficult time.
