Grahams History

For over 85 years, Grahams has been a cornerstone in the Tuakau community. Our primary facility, the West Street Funeral Home in Tuakau, is a versatile space that can comfortably host over 300 attendees, or provide a more intimate setting for a smaller group of 30. Recently, we have invested in extensive renovations, both inside and out, to further refine the funeral experience for all involved.

Grahams Funerals Legacy in Franklin

Over 80 Years of Compassionate Service.

Founded in 1935 by Percy Robert James Graham, Grahams Funeral Services has faithfully served the Franklin area for over eight decades. Now, under the management of Marissa Chapman, our seasoned team continues this legacy of compassionate service.

As proud members of the Funeral Directors Association of New Zealand (FDANZ) since 1936, we are committed to upholding the highest standards in the funeral industry.

At Grahams, we work closely with each family to craft a meaningful farewell, while efficiently handling all statutory requirements. Our team always consults with you regarding the level of preparation needed, ensuring your loved one is treated with utmost care and respect.

As part of our FDANZ membership, we provide the option for families to pre-arrange and pre-pay for funeral services. These invested funds are securely placed in the FDANZ Funeral Trust, for your peace of mind.
