After the funeral service, a gathering may take place where family and friends share time together and reflect on the life of their loved one. 

Sometimes families choose to hold a wake in a family members home, however this may not always be practical.

When organising a wake, it is important to consider the amount of people that may attend. Of course this may be very difficult to determine, however an estimate will be needed when discussing catering. Luke Apthorpe & Family will assist you in choosing a caterer and venue that is able to handle large crowds if required.

A caterer will take care of the preparation of the food as ordered, and take care of the set-up and cleaning. Tea, Coffee, Water and Juice is usually included along with Crockery, Glasses, Serviettes etc. It is always courteous to provide Gluten Free options and allow for dietry requirements if known.

Luke Apthorpe & Family can provide catering menus and suggestions for various venues, and we can book in the location and catering for you if required.

Please discuss your requirements with your funeral consultant, we will provide quote options based on your requirements. The exact cost will be added to the final invoice.
