The purpose of a funeral

Caring for New Zealanders for generations

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.

For 80 years Davis Funerals has been helping New Zealanders create personalised goodbyes. With our beautiful Auckland funeral homes, professional funeral directors and years of experience, we can help you create the right funeral for your loved one. We’ll support you through the entire process, helping to make this emotional time as simple as possible.

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.

"Thank you to everyone at Davis Funerals. Wayne’s service was amazing, we had 300 people in the Panmure Yacht Club. So many people commented on the ashes in the scatter tubes and the service sheets."

Caskets and urns
Personalising your service Choosing who to lead

We offer a beautiful range of handcrafted caskets and urns through our sister company, Return to Sender. 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. Whichever you choose, there will be a matching urn available. We offer both wooden and ceramic urns, as well as bamboo scatter tubes for gentle scattering of your loved one’s ashes.

Eco-friendly funerals
eco preparation davis 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

A memorial book is a beautiful way to capture your loved one’s life. Simply provide us with photos, tributes, obituary notices and any other details that you’d like included and we’ll design a high quality personalised memorial book for you. 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.
