Wakes and Farewell Services
The beautiful Beth Chatto Gardens are situated just 5 miles from Weeley Crematorium and Colchester Cemetery and Crematorium, in a tranquil, picturesque setting, ideally suited for your wake.
Our experienced event organisers at the Gardens will work hard to ensure you can concentrate on what's important during a difficult time.
We serve carefully prepared, locally sourced and seasonal food in either our award-winning restaurant, overlooking the world famous Gravel Garden, or in the Willow Room which looks out over the serene Water Garden.
In conjunction with your funeral director and celebrant we are also able to hold the farewell service in the Willow Room after the Gardens close with a private cremation the following day.
Ample free parking is available on site.
We look forward to your enquiry and have an experienced team member dedicated to helping you organise your event. Please email email@example.com or call 01206 822007 extension 222.
We are currently in the process of creating a special area in the gardens where you will be able to lease memorial plaques, this beautiful peaceful part of the Gardens will be offically open from 27th June 2019, in celebration of Beth's 96th birthday. The area has been cleared and new woodland planting is under way. This will be a wonderful area in the gardens where visitors will be able to sit and reflect on their memories for family or friends who are no longer with us. Plaques are available to be ordered now with a 5 year lease commencing 1st July 2019 - please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
