Our Refreshment Rooms
Most families like to gather following a funeral for tea, coffee, refreshments and to share memories of their loved one or friend. An option for families is to choose to use the catering facilities of William Farmer Funeral Directors. Our refreshment room at our Bendigo Chapel is named the “Oakley Room” in recognition of W.H. Oakley Funeral Directors which was incorporated with William Farmer many years ago. Our refreshment room at our Eaglehawk chapel is a large comfortable and spacious room for family and friends to gather. Alternatively you may choose to have refreshments at a church hall, a home or somewhere more personal to your loved one.
Our Reception Room at Eaglehawk has a large indoor/ outdoor area and caters for various size funerals. This room has plenty of seating and offers Audio Visual Equipment for those who wish to show photos and DVD’s for family and friends to watch.
The Oakley Room is at the rear of the William Farmer Memorial Chapel. The indoor/ outdoor area creates a pleasant ambiance for various size gatherings and provides plenty of seating for family and friends.
Catering For Funerals
We understand that calculating numbers for refreshments can be difficult but we can assist to ensure the correct amount of food is ordered. All you have to do is estimate the number of people for refreshments, and we do the rest. We order the food, or alternately you can arrange the food yourself. We supply the crockery, glasses, water, serviettes, tea, sugar, relish and freshly brewed coffee. Our catering staff will serve and care for all.
