The Left Bank Wakes Fremantle


A celebration of life

Funerals are an important ritual in the grieving process – they don’t just recognise that a life has ended, they recognise that a life was lived. We’re here to help you make things as easy and simple as possible for you during this difficult time.

After a funeral service, it is traditional for mourners to come together to celebrate the life of the person who has passed away. This usually happens in the form of a reception or wake.

If the funeral service of a loved one takes place at the Fremantle Cemetery, we are situated in the ideal location. Guests will only have to drive 3.5km and our venue offers ample of free parking.

From years of experience, we aim to provide the most suitable venue and best service, creating a memorable and appropriate event for you and your guests.

Post-funeral receptions often include food and drinks for mourners, who may be hungry after a long journey or an early service. We have various catering options for you to choose from.

We recommend pre-ordering cocktail platters from our functions menu – to provide all your guests delicious canapes to enjoy.

For the beverages, you have the choice to set up a bar tab for your guests or leave it as a cash bar. We also offer fresh barista made coffees and tea.
