Smith’s Funeral Directors can help you take some of the anxiety out of organising a funeral by providing the use of our funeral home to host a wake/viewing. As part of our complete funeral service, Smith’s Funeral Directors have a cross-community, nondenominational funeral home in Granard, where we welcome the bereaved to hold religious or civil services, with your own celebrants, should you wish.
With many families now choosing not to go to a church for evening reception prayers, our funeral home is very suitable for a gathering of family and friends with or without prayers, which gives people time to meet and greet with friends in a relaxed atmosphere. The full use of the family room and off street parking is available when utilising our funeral home.
Our beautiful service room is suitable for services for all religious and non-religious funerals. Smith’s Funeral Home’s versatility allows for a broad array of multimedia resources for your loved one’s funeral.
How you can use our funeral home
Host a gathering in private for close family members and friends – “a private wake”
Host a gathering where members of the public can come to pay their respects (sometimes known as “the public wake”)
Use it as a resting place until you bring your loved one home or until a funeral mass/ service takes place
Families may also request catering/light refreshments services to be prepared and served within the funeral home. If preferred, they can organise this service for visitors within their own network of family and friends.
A one-off fee is charged for the use of the funeral home which includes the full use of the family room, and off-street parking for the duration of the funeral.
