Celebrating life – your way

As funerals can be a stressful time, it is understandable that families can sometimes forget information that the funeral director has offered. It is our sincere hope that the information on this site will fill in some of the gaps and provide you with helpful information.

“Thanks for all the beautiful love and support you provide to our patients, family/whanau and staff”

The Pohlen team

“Many thanks, Pam. Your Videographers did a good job. And, if I have not already sufficiently conveyed the notion, I consider you and Waterson’s were superbly professional, compassionate and attentive to all the necessary details. It was a privilege and a pleasure working with you.”

Mark Edward Taylor

“Very helpful, caring staff. They took the time to answer all questions, nothing seemed to be an effort. Fantastic people.”
