About Evans Funeral Services

At Evans Funeral Services we offer a modern approach supported by traditional family values.

We are here to help you choose from the many options available, to create a meaningful farewell based on your beliefs, lifestyle and culture, and those of the person who has died. Whether it be a large public gathering, traditional church service, tangi, or private farewell, we will work with you to ensure your needs, and the needs of your family, are met.

"I trust this information will assist you and your family whether you are in the pre-planning stages or presently involved in arranging a funeral. As funerals can be a stressful time, it is understandable that information offered by the funeral director can be forgotten. It is our sincere hope that the information here will help you fill in some of those gaps. If you have any further questions please feel free to make contact with us."


David Parker, Managing Director
