Testimonials –

We love to hear your thoughts……


I wish that all funeral services were as good as these people. They treated our family like we were one of theirs.
Where I personally was not involved in the arrangements, our family that were could not stop talking about how good everyone was and they made our family so comfortable throughout the sad passing of our mum and grandmother.
Thank you again so much


I’d like to acknowledge your outstanding services and thank you deeply for the amazing job that was done on our Papa. Nga Andrew. He looked and stayed looking good throughout the 4 days. And I think having a recognisable deceased love one is important during a grieving process. Thank you!!
Very much recommended to all ♡♡♡


Re: Tuhaereroa (Dan) Little … Gateway Funeral …Amazing service. Thankyou Sean for your compassion and support. I am sure the entire staff are just as supportive however it was you Sean that accomodated our grief and made the entire process free of stress. Your cultural sensitivity and understanding of Maori kawa has earned Gateway Funeral Services deep respect from my whanau and extended whanau from Te Kaha. Thank you Sean to you and Gateway staff.
