I wanted to thank you so much for the superb food you supplied yesterday and the care you both took with serving and getting everything ready for us. It was lovely to arrive and find everything done for us, especially as it was under such sad circumstances. It really was a huge weight off my mind.


Thank you so much for today. We were very impressed with your service. Everything was very well organised, you and Nigel were attentive but not intrusive and the food was absolutely perfect.


I wanted to thank your team for all they did on Wednesday. From the minute they arrived I felt a huge sense of relief as I knew that all would be taken care of, as indeed it was. The arrangement of the house as well as the food and drink were all so efficiently delivered and I am truly grateful.


Flexibly catering solutions

We fully understand that the very nature of funerals means very little notice. Our aim is to be efficient in quickly arranging a suitable menu, but without any compromise to the attention to detail for which Avala is known.

We can provide whatever style of catering you’d like for the wake. From a light lunch to afternoon tea or buffet, we’ll help you decide on the best solution. In addition, we can provide drinks, glasses and china, table linen – everything you need.

Need help with additional services?

If you require serving staff, ours will be mindful of the event, professional and dignified throughout the wake. They’ll take care of setting up, serving and clearing away, leaving you free to be with your guests.

Whether you’re inviting guests back to your own home or are holding the wake in a venue, we can organise as much or as little of the event as you want – from furniture hire to a string quartet, we can help.
