A gathering after a funeral, typically known as a ‘wake’ is held to enable family and friends to reflect and reminice on the life and memory of the deceased. Though of course you can do whatever feels right for you and the family.
If you do choose to have a get together, our experienced staff at AJB Funerals can help you plan an appropriate event that celebrates the deceased while taking into account the thoughts and feelings of their family and loved ones.
Such a gathering should be planned in consideration of any family members who have travelled from out of town. Doing so will allow those grieving to share memories.
We can advise you on all aspects of the post funeral reception including suitable venues and catering requirements.
