Funeral wakes and venues

There are many places where you can hold a funeral and/ or a wake. If you or the person who passed away attended a particular church or other place of worship, then that church may be the fitting place to have the funeral service.

Family tradition or personal preference might lead you to hold the funeral at another venue such as:

  • the funeral director’s chapel
  • the nursing home chapel
  • the crematorium chapel
  • the graveside
  • a rural property
  • a private residence
  • a school auditorium
