Funeral & Wake Catering Services

bespoke menus

At Chefs Catering Northwest we are there to support all of your big life events including supporting families and friends at what we like to consider, Celebrations of Life. We are not your typical funeral caterers. We will work with you to ensure the perfect menu and incorporating some of your loved one’s favourite dishes. Whether it is a dessert they enjoyed or their favourite light bite, let us know what to include so we can bring everyone together to celebrate their life in the best way possible.

you choose your style

As with all of our events, our menus are completely bespoke to you and what you need. Buffets are more and more popular for wakes as it means the whole family can take their time to enjoy the food whilst being able to move around freely and spend time together.

If you would like a sit down meal that is something we can definitely arrange for you with as much or as little as you require.

No matter what style of service you would like, we can ensure the very best for you and your family whilst supporting you the entire way.

Our team understand and respect how intimate and sensitive these events are so right down to the smallest details of what colour shirt you would like our team to wear on the day itself – we are here to support you and your family.


Are you celebrating the life of your loved one in a special place or somewhere that meant a lot to you as a family? We can bring our services directly to you. No matter where this is taking place, our team will be there to support you every step of the way.

When working with Chefs Catering Northwest you can hire any of our venues to host a wake and you will not be charged any venue hire prices at all or you can choose to have our funeral food delivered to you with no additional fee either. We will provide the team, food and our high standard of service from start to finish so you don’t have to worry about a thing. 

We can even work with you or the funeral directors to set up a very special and intimate memorial table with any photos or memories you would like to include.

Contact us

For any requirements for food or information about how you can hire our venues and services for any event, contact us today and we will always do our best to cater for all of your needs.
