Wakes Arrangements, Cairns

When a loved one passes away, it’s common for families and friends to want to gather to celebrate their life, by organising a reception after the funeral. This is a time to share stories of the recently departed and is usually less formal than the ceremony itself.

Planning for funeral wakes can seem overwhelming because there’s a lot to think about; from catering, to guests, to venue and entertainment options. The details are up to you, and often depend on the wishes of your loved on (especially if they have pre-planned their wake) but you can get help with wakes funeral planning from Cairns Funeral Directors.

We are dedicated to relieving your stress by offering wakes funeral planning in North Queensland that is sensitive to your time requirements and budget. As a family-run business, we will never rush you or try to push you to make a decision, because we understand the importance of getting every detail just right.

Planning North Queensland Wakes Arrangements

We want to help you organise a funeral to remember, which is why we take a personalised approach to wakes arrangements at Cairns Funeral Directors. Everyone wants to remember their loved ones in their own unique way, so the wake should be an opportunity to tell stories, share photos and create a beautiful farewell.

We will take the time to chat with you and find out exactly how you would like to approach planning for funeral wakes in Cairns and surrounding areas. We’ll discuss this with complete sensitivity to your needs and we can offer assistance with arrangements, liaising with catering companies and venues, and help with paperwork.

While some people prefer a small, intimate reception after a funeral, others like a more flamboyant affair to give their family member a wake to remember. We can talk you through the options available, so you can work out what is right for you and your family.

North Queensland wakes arrangements don’t have to be a complicated task. Because we know that you already have enough to deal with, we endeavour to make it as easy as we possibly can.
