The team at Grahams will work with your family to create a meaningful farewell and ensure all statutory requirements are taken care of.
We will also take the best care of your loved one after consultation as to the appropriate level of preparation required.
If you’ve just lost a loved one it may be a difficult time to have to make decisions on their funeral arrangements.
At Grahams Funerals we have the expertise and experience to help with all the decisions needed to make sure the farewell will be memorable. We have facilities in Tuakau, Pukekohe and Waiuku but can also make arrangements for the location of your choice.
Funerals can be held at a Church, Marae, Crematorium, Funeral Home Chapel, the graveside, the family residence, Sports Clubs, Community Halls, etc. The family can choose the funeral service venue they feel is appropriate.
The funeral arrangements can be discussed at a place and time convenient to the family. This could be a family residence, at one of our three locations, the hospital or rest home, or a friends residence.Read More
I would like to say a huge Thank you to Matt for all he did for us a family. You cared for our Dad from the time you picked him to the time of his burial, you ensured he was comfy in his casket and you made Dad look beautiful and peaceful.
You made the planning of our dearly loved Dads service so easy and accommodated everything we wanted to make Dads day all about him from choosing his casket, ensuring the sound system was sorted for the celebrant who was also an amazing lady and ensuring we had umbrellas.
Thank you all so very very much for all you did for us and Dad.
Thank-you so much for everything you did to assist us with Mum. You made what was an extremely hard day, so much easier. We really do appreciate you and have told the world how amazing you really are.
Thank you so much once again.
