Our team are here to guide you through your options to remember and celebrate your loved one’s life.

Caring for your loved one includes the hygienic care and preservation of their body. We can discuss your options and help you make the right choice.

  • Embalming
    If you want family to visit your loved one, or you’d like to care for them at home or on your marae, we recommend embalming to keep your loved one looking their best and gently preserve their body. Embalming is also required if your loved one is being repatriated.
  • No embalming
    If your loved one is being buried or cremated soon after death you may choose not to have their body embalmed. Their body will be gently washed, dressed, and kept cool. We recommend the funeral take place within 24-48 hours.
