About Our Funeral Home

A family-run business since 1924, Abraham’s Funeral Home understands how difficult the passing of a loved one can be. The celebration of their life should be handled with sensitivity, empathy, and dignity, and conducted in a way that honours their memory.

You need someone you can trust, and who has the knowledge, experience, and facilities to farewell your loved one the way they deserve.

We pride ourselves on taking the time to build relationships with all our families, and in using innovative products and services to give you the best assistance we can, along with the best training programs for our staff.

Abraham’s Funeral Home is here to help you in your time of need.

Our History

Family Owned and Operated

In 1924 Willie bought an established joinery factory. Through manufacturing caskets, he became involved in providing funeral services.

During the early years, Willie redeveloped his joinery factory to incorporate a small Chapel.

After many years of serving New Plymouth, and having arranged more than 6,000 funerals, Willie retired in 1960.
