About Dils


our facilities

We are located across Auckland’s North Shore (Albany and Birkenhead) and on the Hibiscus Coast (Stanmore Bay), ensuring we have a location convenient to you. All our facilities work together so it doesn’t matter which office you phone and you can use whichever location is best suited for you. Each Chapel is slightly different in it’s size and configuration, so we are able to cater to a variety of needs . You are more than welcome to come in and have a look around at what might be best for you.

North Harbour Chapel

Gentle, cascading water provides a contemplative backdrop to the main chapel. The chapel seats 140 but the walls move to accommodate up to 200 people seated and more standing if necessary. We also have an intimate chapel with seating for 20. The chapel has everything that is required to accommodate the modern funeral including sound system, audio visual equipment and web streaming.

Our reception lounge located adjacent to the chapel is the ideal place to meet with family and friends after the service to share refreshments and memories in a more relaxed environment.

There are also three private viewing areas, two garden courtyards for your enjoyment, and arrangement and administrative offices. Our building also includes state of the art mortuary and preparation facilities.

Birkenhead Chapel

This boutique chapel is small and intimate, a personal and homely venue for funerals that require seating for 40 or less. It includes a private viewing room and arrangement office.

This location is a popular choice for many Birkenhead residents who feel a strong connection with the area. It can also be a very convenient viewing location even if the funeral is being held elsewhere.

In addition to being available for funerals, the Grief Centre operates from our building, offering counselling and other grief related support to those in need.

Schnapper Rock Cremations

Schnapper Rock Cremations is our own private crematorium located at our North Harbour Chapel. Operating our own crematorium allows us to extend the care we offer families. This means that you don’t have to involve a third party in the cremation process which provides additional confidence knowing that we’re looking after this for you too. Our cremator has an adjacent viewing room which also allows greater flexibility for families that might want to witness the casket being placed in the cremator or have other cultural requirements.
