Papatoetoe Funeral Cottage


If your loved one has passed away overseas

We are experienced in the repatriation service and work closely with many funeral homes to ensure the safe and stress-free return of your loved one to Aoteroa.

Once in Auckland, one of our caring staff will ensure all the correct documentation is taken care of.

We then bring your loved one from the airport back to our Cottage to meet with you and your family. The family is more than welcome to be included in every step of this process.

We have a small Chapel and reception area onsite to use if you wish to have other family members gather to pay their respects. We can also accomodate familiy who wish to stay the night and rest before making their journey the following day (subject to availability).

There is a loan hearse available which the family can use themselves to drive their loved one to the place of rest (subject to conditions).

On behalf of our Ngaia whanau we would like to say a huge thankyou for creating such a precious moment in helping us bring my Uncle back to NZ and making the process alot easier. You made our family feel very welcomed and the whole process seem such a breeze.

Thankyou thankyou thankyou.
