Kapiti Funeral Home Chapel
Our chapel is beautifully appointed with a fresh modern style, making it a less formal warm surrounding. The chapel has separate chairs allowing the layout to be altered to suit the type of service requested and the number attending. This flexible design works well with intimate groups of 20 or 30 medium sized groups of up to 100. For the larger services the chapel opens out through bi fold doors at the back into the large adjoining lounge, with seating for a further 100. And if needed there is also a large foyer with ample standing room and seating. The total capacity can then seat 220 guests. The chapel has large feature windows looking out onto ornamental gardens and has a feature stained glass window.
The chapel is also equipped with a modern computerised audio visual system, delivering quality sound and picture throughout the service, including the ability to stream, Skype and video services.
Crematorium & Chapel
We are proud to own the Kapiti Crematorium, this is situated in the beautiful grounds of Awa Tapu cemetery. The Crematorium and Committal Chapel is the only crematorium in Paraparaumu. And because it is located at the grounds of the local cemetery, we can help you with the final farewell of your loved one in peaceful non pressured surroundings.
We have 3 hearses in our fleet and within the fleet we provide two different styles of vehicle for funeral use. We have a white Ford Falcon and two brand new gold Holden Commodore hearses. Or if you like something nontraditional a white Kia Carnaval
