Funerals and Wakes

Funeral teas, wakes and memorial parties can be both moving and uplifting events.

Our team here at the Holiday Inn Ellesmere Port/Cheshire Oaks have many years experience in sympathetically attending to funeral requirements at this most difficult time, ensuring that they do not add to the stress of losing a family member or close friend. With the greatest of sympathy and compassion, we will help you to organise your funeral wake with empathy and consideration to yourself, family and friends.

Our staff recognise the importance of events such as funerals & memorials, and can organise catering, musicians and anything else you may require. On the day itself, we will provide a sympathetic, discreet and efficient service for the bereaved family during this difficult time.

One of our hosts will personally greet you and your guests upon arrival at the funeral wake, look after you and serve refreshments. We will stay on hand for any other requirements you have or remain nearby, if you require greater privacy. We will ensure that your day runs smoothly, allowing you to relax, remember and spend time with friends and family.
