Arrange a wake at Sandwell Valley Crematorium

We are delighted to offer a private room for hire in our purpose built Reception Suite at Sandwell Valley Crematorium.

This peaceful room may be booked for two hours following a funeral service, offering an array of menus catering for up to 80 guests.

All food is freshly prepared on site and there is also a licensed bar.

Wakes can be held here in memory of loved ones allowing friends and family to gather and reflect after the funeral service has taken place, without the need for guests to travel to another site.

This facility is not restricted for cremations at Sandwell Valley Crematorium only. Bookings may also be made for after funerals at other venues.

Trust our experienced team to provide that personal service for you and your guests.

Call us on 0121 569 6700 or 0121 569 6702 for more information.

Testimonials

“We held the reception for my Mom, yesterday afternoon in the reception suite. Two years ago we also held one for my Dad there as well and had no hesitation at booking for Mom as well.  In both cases we were really pleased with both the service and the food. Yesterday, we had many compliments on the quality of the buffet especially the cakes! Can you please pass on my thanks to Donna and her staff as everything was very professional, immaculate, well prepared and presented plus tasty.  I would have no hesitation at recommending the service to others as we were very pleased”.

“Thank you for providing the catering for our mom’s wake. It was a lovely place to go and see each other in a relaxed environment. The cakes were lovely and the tea and coffee just kept coming! Thank you again”

“We just wanted to say a big thank you for the beautiful buffet and service you provided for our mum’s funeral. People had come to the wake from far a field and everyone was very impressed by both the facility Sandwell has and the wonderful buffet you both provided. Thank you & best wishes for the future”
