CH Barkers Simplicity Funerals: Simply respectful. Simply affordable
‘‘You only get one chance to conduct a good funeral.’’
The team at CH Barkers Simplicity Funerals is very aware of the importance of farewelling loved ones in a memorable, yet affordable way.
For more than 100 years CH Barker has been of service to the people of Onehunga, Mangere Bridge and surrounding communities. Celebrating their first anniversary CH Barker is privileged to be able to re-establish with Simplicity Funerals located at Royal Oak.
The team of three qualified staff has many years of experience in helping families through a very difficult time.
Manager and funeral director, Brian Stott, funeral director Craig Arthur, and administrator Mark Young have been honoured to look after many families, ensuring their needs are met and they’re treated with care and compassion.
‘‘We pride ourselves on having the highest standard of commitment to the people who rely on us,’’ Brian says.
‘‘We want to ensure every funeral is tailormade to suit not only the person who has died, but those they leave behind.’’
CH Barkers Simplicity Funerals has brand new premises at 725 Mt Albert Road at the Royal Oak Roundabout, with offices, a chapel, catering area and viewing rooms.
‘‘Our warm, friendly environment helps to make families feel a little more at ease at a very sad time,’’ Brian says.
CH Barker Simplicity Funerals offers options in pre-paying and prearranging funerals, and the staff are always willing to offer obligation-free advice.
‘‘Funerals are a special time for families to be together to remember a loved one and honour them for everything they’ve done,’’ Craig says.
According to him, they encourage people to have funerals that are fitting and meaningful, but at the same time, affordable. ‘‘We consider it an honour to be asked to guide a family through arranging and conducting a funeral, and we know our experience can take away some of the stress that many families face.
