Funerals and Wakes

Funerals are a difficult enough time as it is, without worrying where to get things like water boilers or cups and saucers. We make it easy for you to hire serving equipment to help take some pressure off

Funerals are an unfortunate fact of life, and while they are times of sorrow and grief there doesn’t need to be any stress about organising a wake or reception for the mourners.

What funeral hire can I use to serve food and drinks at the wake I’m holding?

While funerals and wakes are a time of mourning, they are also a celebration of a person's life. It might be the last thing that anyone wants to think about, but we're here to help making this as easy as possible.

If you are offering mourners tea and coffee, we have the right equipment for you to make this simple. Our water boilers allow you to have plenty of hot water on tap for making tea and coffee, while our stacking cups and saucers are simple and efficient ways to serve. We also have a wide range of teapots, coffee pots and milk jugs so that your guests can help themselves.

Can I get extra chairs and tables for a funeral service?

Another consideration for a funeral or wake is the furniture available at the venue. It may be necessary to hire chairs and tables to cater for guests, in which case Expo Hire can help.

For when you need seating we have various options available. If budget is at minimum then our black or white folding plastic chairs offer the most basic solution which can be used indoors or outdoors. For a more comfortable approach both our banqueting and conference chairs combine a tasteful understated look with comfort. We have a large stock of banqueting tables for hire, which when paired with linen make a tasteful place for people to sit.
