- FUNERAL CATERING -
We understand, from our own experience, how stressful organising a funeral can be. Having arranged the funeral service and informed friends, family and colleagues of the details, you may want to spend time after the funeral with your guests. You may be concerned where you can hold the funeral reception and what you should offer your guests in the way of refreshments. To take away the uncertainty that can come from organising the reception, it may help to ask yourself what really matters to you. We believe the following is important:
Our specialised funeral catering service is provided by our sister company Careys Funeral Caterers. They are award winning caterers who have catered for families in and around Kent for over 25 years. We have close links with many of the local undertakers who have experienced our catering service and recommend us personally. If you would like a referral, please ask. There’s a reason we are Beckenham’s longest standing funeral caterer!
We go to great lengths to ensure the reception runs as planned. We help you cover every detail, even the ones you haven’t thought of yet. We are happy to discuss arrangements over the phone or if you would prefer we can met at your home, our office or at the venue. Our detailed proposal will set out everything that we have talked about with a comprehensive quotation. Our office is staffed 5 days a week and all contact is treated with the utmost sensitivity. We can advise on suitable local venues that are suitable for the occasion and for your anticipated number of guests. We can even provide gazebos if you decide to entertain at home and need additional space. We can advise on the number of guests to cater for as we know you don’t usually get RSVPs.
When we provide our funeral catering service we understand that we are representing you. We take that trust seriously. Our front of house team is smart, courteous, discreet and professional. They are personally selected and are trained in-house; we do not use agency staff. Our team understand how important this day is and you can rely on us to look after your guests as if they were our own.
Our menus have been carefully designed for the occasion and can easily accommodate a few extra guests should they come back after the service. We promise that your guests will go away talking about how delicious the food was; our chefs make the most delicious sandwiches and our pastry chefs bake outstanding cakes. If you haven’t heard of our famous cocktail sausages before, you’re in for a treat. But don’t just take our word for it, read what our past clients have to say!
"We promise to give you complete peace of mind and ensure that a difficult day runs as seamlessly as possible."
" Thank you and your team very much for yesterday. I really appreciated how smoothly everything went and how efficiently Melissa and Caroline worked. I didn’t want yesterday to be too sad a day in saying ‘goodbye’ to my dear mum as she was such a happy and thoughtful person. It was lovely to be able share special memories of her afterwards with family and friends quietly at home with your lovely staff keeping us refreshed with plenty of tea and the splendid buffet." -

"We should like to thank you and your staff for your efficient and caring service and will certainly recommend you to friends and colleagues in the future. My mother would certainly have liked the sandwiches and cakes you served, especially as she had a sweet tooth (well in fact she didn’t have any teeth at all because of her fondness for sweet things!!)"

“You were recommended by our funeral director and I can understand why; the booking was effortless; choosing the menu and special dietary requirements equally easy – no fuss. On the day of my mother’s funeral, the staff came on time, set up a lovely display of fresh, delicious food (including our special dietary requests); they were professional, extremely polite and very helpful; they cleared up quietly with no fuss or mess exactly as planned. All of my mother’s funeral guests were very impressed with the catering and specifically commented on the high standard of the service and food. thank you so much. I will be eternally grateful.”
