Create a goodbye that builds meaning and lasting memories

There are many ways to create a personalised funeral service for your loved one, from choosing who to lead it through to your choice of music. We can guide you through all the options to create a funeral that’s as unique and meaningful as your loved one.

Choosing who to lead the service

If your loved one was religious, choosing a minister to lead their funeral service makes sense – especially if the minister was known to them, or they had a personal connection to their local church. You can also choose a celebrant, who can include religious elements in the service, like prayers and readings. Or they can ensure the service is wholly non-religious. We have a range of celebrants we recommend, if needed. For a personal touch, you can even ask family or friends to lead the service.

Options to consider for the service



Flowers are a beautiful way to show affection. We can help coordinate bouquets or other floral arrangements, or you can use your own florist.



Honour your loved one through the music of your – or their – choice. We can even arrange live music by organists or pipers.



If you’d like to have refreshments after the funeral service, we can organise this for you through our experienced in-house caterers, Gattings.

Service Sheet

Service sheets

Printed service sheets include details such as hymns, readings, tributes and messages of thanks and help to create a lovely, personal service.

Capturing shared memories

A beautiful part of a funeral is hearing and seeing a wonderful range of memories about your loved one. We encourage you and your family and friends to include photos and video of your loved one in the service – we can help you put together multi-media presentations that celebrate your loved one’s life.

If family and friends can’t attend the service or you’d like to keep a permanent record of it, you can now record your loved one’s funeral. We can arrange a professional recording company to capture all the memories and stories that people share about your loved one.

Sometimes, people can’t attend a funeral, especially if they’re based overseas. For absent family and friends, we can webcast the funeral on the internet, so they can see it happening. This is available at our three chapels in Mt Eden, Henderson and Pakuranga. We can also bring in a company to do live streaming at any of our other funeral homes or the location on your choice..

Make a beautiful final journey

Our fleet includes a custom-built Cadillac Premier hearse. This state-of-the-art vehicle was built in America by Eagle Coach Company who are known for building the highest quality hearses in the industry.

Pure silver fingerprint jewellery

Fingerprint jewellery is a very personalised way of creating a keepsake of your loved one, a truly special piece for you to treasure forever.

We partner with the experienced team at Fingerprints, who will come on site to press their finger directly into the silver. This becomes your actual pendant, capturing not only the fingerprint, but the shape and indentation that is unique to your loved one. With several shapes available, they can work with you to customise items such as pendants, key rings, cufflinks and more.

Handcrafted memorial books

A memorial book is a beautiful and permanent memento of your loved one’s life. Provide us with some photos, tributes, obituary notices or any other details you’d like included, and we’ll turn it in a high quality personalised book. Handcrafted and beautifully presented, it represents a lasting record of family and friends that attended the funeral.
