The reception immediately follows the funeral. It is often known as the gathering or the wake.
It is an opportunity for friends and family who attended the funeral to participate in a gathering that will relieve the grief.

Both family and friends can share positive memories and comfort each other in the moment of need.

The reception or wake still remains the most popular way of bringing friends and family together to remember though memorial events are held several weeks after the funeral.

The chosen venue is depends on a number of factors:

· Proximity to the church/cemetery

· Number of people who will be attending

· Type of reception

· Music

· Meal or Buffet

· Car parking options

· Tribute reading

· Fund raising event

FPS will provide a choice of suitable local venues and catering companies and will support of the arrangements.

We will aim to ensure a successful event and can plan it carefully with your advice and direction following a discussion with appropriate family members.
