Funeral teas and wakes

Funeral teas and wakes

16 September 2019

We appreciate that losing a loved one is difficult enough, and that arranging a funeral tea or wake can be overwhelming. At the Mercure Hull Grange Park Hotel we can cater for your funeral reception with compassion and understanding.

Located just 200 yards from Haltemprice Crematorium, the hotel is experienced in catering for funeral teas and wakes. With plenty of parking for family cars, the hotel is flexible in offering funeral receptions to accommodate your preferences at what can be a very difficult time.

From traditional teas including sandwiches, cake, and tea and coffee; to finger buffets, hot buffets, and even sit down meals, we can cater for your personal requirements for your family gathering. Arrival drinks can be arranged, and an account bar can be set up for you.

Whether it’s a small intimate gathering of just 10 guests, or a larger number of 200 or even 300, we have a variety of rooms to suit your specific requirements to ensure family and friends can be accommodated as you celebrate your loved one’s life. We’ll help with any picture boards you may want setting up, flower arrangements, and can provide the technology should you wish to present a digital slide show.

With an average lead time of 7 – 10 days we try our best to accommodate your specific requirements in your time of need. We can send a brochure with the details, and the funeral tea or wake can be prepaid based on your requirements and the number of guests, helping to keep things as simple as possible for you. Room hire is complimentary when the hotel caters for your guests.

Listening to your requirements and ensuring everything is prepared on the day can help to ease some pressure for you. The experienced compassionate team will be available throughout to provide a helping hand if required.

If you’re looking for a reception venue for a family gathering for a funeral tea or wake, the location of the Mercure Hull Grange Park Hotel makes it an ideal choice. We are 500 meters from Willerby Manor and the perfect venue for your ceremony. For those travelling from further afield, overnight accommodation can be arranged if required.
