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 and we are currently in the process of creating a special memorial garden, which we hope to have ready very soon - please ask for details.
We look forward to your enquiry and have an experienced team member dedicated to helping you organise your event. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01206 822007 extension 222.
