Welcome to the Kapiti Coast Funeral Home

Gathering is not currently possible but streaming or recording of the unattended funeral or committal is possible.

Even though no-one is now allowed to gather at burials, cremations, memorial services, open or closed caskets viewings, funeral wakes, processions, or receptions and social gatherings, both indoors and outdoors.

Funeral directors, as essential service providers will continue working during
Level 4. They will be able to guide you on the best options
for your situation, which could include: Live streaming services, the use of social media, or videoing services and committal for viewing shortly after.

Also we can dress your loved one after embalming and video a time of viewing and then holding the funeral or tangi after the Level 4 restrictions ease. Bear in mind that we don’t know when that might be, and there might be practical or cultural reasons why this is not an option.

Holding a memorial service later when restrictions on gatherings are lifted and it is safe to get together.

below are the links to what you can and can’t do under these restrictions.

Our philosophy on funeral care is simple; “Whatever needs doing we are there for you”. We provide total support, total service and total care.

Our goal of ‘total care’ stems from a genuine desire to help and provide complete support for the bereaved family, eliminating as much of the stress as possible.
We are there to support you and journey with you through the funeral process
and beyond (through our free bereavement support services).

Whenever you phone, whatever the time, a staff member will be available to answer your call.
