Funeral Notices

We understand how vitally important it is to stay in touch with friends and loved ones, particularly at such a critical time.

We believe a funeral notice is a farewell within itself – as well as a formal notification to the wider community the details of the funeral service that is to take place.

As part of our commitment to serving our wider Coromandel community we invite you to register here to receive regular funeral updates so you never miss those important announcements.
