A FUNERAL HOME WITH A DIFFERENCE
Dil’s Funeral Services is no ordinary funeral home. In a profession known for its tradition and conservatism - we’re no stereotype.
We are friendly, responsive, and genuine. We have a modern approach to Funeral Service which is underpinned by wholesome family values. Our style is refreshing, and can be experienced in every facet of our business; our people, facilities, and services.
When you come away from a Dil’s Funeral you are left feeling everything happened just as you wanted it to, you are reassured the choices made were right for you. You leave feeling cared for and knowing you have a friend you can count on in a difficult moment.
Funerals are important
A funeral is an important opportunity to mark the life of someone who has died, and in so doing acknowledge the part they played in our lives as we now face the future without their physical presence. We believe funerals are beautiful.
The form this event takes will be influenced by the beliefs, values, lifestyle and culture of the one who has died and of those responsible for organising the funeral. A good funeral is one that captures these essential characteristics in just the right way.
The format might be a personal tribute, a large public gathering or an intimate private farewell. It can consist of the ritual of a traditional church service, or be marked by the personalisation of a contemporary celebration of a person’s life. Whatever the setting, the options are varied.
It's your choice
At Dil’s we are committed to ensuring that this farewell is based on your choices. There is no one right way to do a funeral, so what is possible is limited only by time and imagination. Our role is to work through and facilitate the many options available to you in creating a relevant and meaningful funeral that acknowledges the person who has died and the place they hold in your heart.
Working together, we will create a service that is an expression of love and respect. Your personal and special needs will be met, and traditions important to your family will be followed.
Let us help you
In short, our philosophy is that nothing is too much trouble to provide you with a funeral service that will, eventually, help you, and your family and friends, come to terms with your loss.
Dil’s Funeral Services was established in 1960. Located on Auckland's North Shore, we are a family owned and managed business now in our third generation. We are also members of the Funeral Directors' Association of New Zealand (FDANZ) and Selected Independent Funeral Homes, an international organisation which recognises excellence in funeral service.
