Creating lasting memories through grief

With empathy, expertise, and respect, we help you curate personalised goodbyes that build meaning and lasting memories from grief.

Helping navigate each journey

The death of someone close to us results in an inevitable journey we must all experience called “grief”. It will be very different for each of us but regrettably, there is no way to avoid it. Since the dawn of time, cultures and religions have developed their own unique approach to deal with their grief. This generally starts with the funeral.

Because each person’s journey takes a different route, we help you navigate your own personal pathway. By offering guidance and support, we help you reach the destination you need by curating the right funeral for you and your loved one. Our experienced, respectful funeral directors are always, reliably there for you as you travel this road.

Beautiful funeral homes in Auckland

We have a range of funeral homes across Auckland, from our central Grange Manor in Mt Eden out to Henderson in West Auckland. Some are purpose-built modern funeral homes, others a lovingly restored historic villa and bungalow complete with original features. Whichever you choose, they’re all peaceful and private and provide a beautiful setting to farewell your loved one.

Caskets and urns

We offer a beautiful range of caskets and urns. Our New Zealand-made caskets and urns use natural New Zealand materials, and you can choose a style that best reflects your loved one. Suitable for all budgets, there are contemporary, traditional and simple designs available, plus eco-friendly options. You can even personalise the casket by having a digital image of your choice printed onto it. In most cases, there will be a matching urn available. We offer both wooden and ceramic urns and also carry a range of bespoke handmade pieces.

Eco-friendly funerals
eco friendly funerals

If being environmentally conscious is important to you and your loved one, we’re able to offer complete eco-friendly funeral services. If you choose cremation, our state-of-the-art crematorium has been sourced from a US company with a strong environmental focus. This allows us to provide more environmentally-friendly cremations. Our eco-friendly funeral options include no embalming, alternatives to standard embalming and recommendations for eco burial sites in Auckland. We also exclusively offer caskets made from sustainable materials and can provide a unique eco-friendly urn to return your loved one’s ashes in, as an alternative to the traditional plastic urns. If you have any questions about eco-friendly funerals, we’re always here to talk.

Memorial books

Inside the memorial book, we can leave space for friends and family that attended the funeral to leave messages of love and share their memories of your loved one. This makes this handcrafted and beautifully presented memorial book a lasting record of both your loved one and of their final goodbye.
