All covid-19 restrictions have been lifted for funerals and tangihanga. We still have our health and safety procedures in place and hand sanitising is still recommended on entry to any of our facilities.

Family Members travelling from Overseas:
Quantine requirements presently in place for people entering the country may determine the timing for a funeral and we encourage families to discuss their wishes and options with a member of our team.

It is a recommendation of the Ministry of Health and the Funeral Directors Association of NZ that contact tracing registers still continue for those attending funerals during Level 1.
All Richmond Funeral Home facilities are registered with the Government NZ Covid Tracing App for personal tracking and Q codes are available at the entrance to each of our facilities.

Richmond Funeral Home will follow the advice of New Zealand Authorities and any guidelines or regulations that Government may put in place at this time.
In all we do we must consider your health, the health of our staff, and care and dignity of the deceased.

Please be assured our trained staff already practice a high standard of care and are trained in caring and preparing the deceased.

We ask that if you have any concerns or if you know or suspect the deceased or any one of your family members may have been in contact with potentially infected people that you advise us.The inclusion of this information on this website is designed to be reassuring and helpful.  If you require further information we suggest you visit the following useful website:
