Where Will the Service Be?

Where the funeral service is held is an important aspect of funeral planning.

If a person is a member of a religious denomination, often the service will be held in their local church. Alternatively you may choose to use one of our funeral home chapels, or a crematorium chapel. Harbour City, Karori and Whenua Tapu crematoriums all have chapels attached.

When arranging a large funeral, families sometimes choose another venue appropriate to the large number of people likely to attend. Some examples are Old St Paul’s in Wellington, and the Silverstream Retreat Centre In the Hutt Valley.

A funeral service can also be held in the family home or any other setting that has significance for the person who has died and their family. A catering lounge for a ‘cup of tea’ is seen as an important feature when selecting a venue. Our funeral director will be happy to discuss suitable options for you to consider.
