What happens next

The venue after the funeral

A funeral wake is the name given to the social gathering that happens after the Funeral Service.

It is a good opportunity to share memories with family, friends and colleagues; it is not uncommon for people to share laughter too.

The most common funeral wake venues include:

  • The Ivy Suite – our own licensed premises
  • Church halls
  • Pubs
  • Hotels
  • Social clubs
  • A family member’s home

We are also happy to recommend other venues that cater for after funeral receptions, so please feel free to ask us for more details.

The Ivy Suite

Located at our head office in Northfield, The Ivy Suite’ is our own function suite; this air conditioned room is often hired out for post funeral receptions. We can offer a great range of buffet and sit down menu options, with a license to serve alcohol too. The Ivy Suite is fully accessible for those with disabilities and can cater for up to 80 people; we’d be delighted to show you around.


At home

If you would like to have a gathering at home after the funeral, but would prefer not to have to deal with any catering arrangements yourself, why not let our caterers do the job for you?  What’s more, they will bring their own crockery, cutlery and glasses so you won’t need to lift a finger after what is likely to be an emotionally tiring day.  Just call us on 0121 476 9111 to discuss your requirements.


Home sitting service

If you have concerns about leaving your home unoccupied whilst you are attending the Funeral Service, we can make a member of our home sitting service available to you. Please call us on 0121 476 9111 for more information.

Wish to thank all staff at Mortons for being helpful, caring, understanding at my fathers funeral. Used the same director at mums funeral 10 yrs ago so recommend. Made the day a bit easier on a sad day.
