There are many alternatives to consider when planning a funeral service. Please feel free to tell us of your ideas and thoughts. Our role is to put your ideas into reality.

Types of funeral services include:

  • A complete service and committal at the Church or Chapel
  • A service conducted at a Church or Chapel followed by a procession or cortege to the Cemetery for the burial or cremation
  • Graveside service
  • A public or private service
  • A memorial service
  • Funeral services at an alternative location such as Marae, family home or garden, park, or beach.


Remember a funeral service is an opportunity to celebrate a life. Personalising the funeral to reflect the individual can be done in many ways.

  • Favourite music can be played.
  • Involve family and friends to deliver eulogies, readings or poems.
  • Display photos, hobbies and crafts reflecting the person’s life and interests.
  • Personalise the casket with special items such as fishing rods, garden tools, builders apron etc.
  • Personalised service sheets.
  • Personalise the floral tribute eg include favourite flowers or colours perhaps even garden veggies for the keen vegetable gardener.
