Just Funerals: an affordable, personal choice
When we are faced with the death of a loved one, our thinking processes are in turmoil. Yet many decisions, particularly concerning funeral arrangements have to be made quickly, and very often the cost seems like a giant obstacle.
If only someone could lighten the load.
Vicky and Steven Davey established Just Funerals three years ago partly because their careers had progressed more and more into caring and compassionate roles; partly because they felt they could offer more affordable funeral options for people struggling to cope with difficult times.
They have formulated a pricing structure designed to keep costs down without compromising any of the ways you honour and remember your loved ones. The costs structure is totally transparent, and can often halve the cost of funeral expenses – be it a simple cremation, private or chapel service.
‘‘We offer choices that suit your needs, with as much or as little assistance as you wish,’’ Steven says. ‘‘We also offer affordable options in the choice of casket, which is a major component cost of a funeral.’’
How can funerals be more affordable? Steven says they have been able to rationalise each component cost, for example, by not building an expensive funeral home and chapel; instead holding funeral services in churches, chapels, on marae or in Council facilities such as Manukau and Waikumete. Without the major overheads, Just Funerals can keep costs to a minimum.
Options and costs are spelt out plainly in Just Funeral’s brochures and website. Included in their options is an MDF casket which is both environmentally considerate and affordable.
Just Funerals is a genuine family owned and operated company, with branches in Auckland and Whangarei, and a recent expansion into Christchurch.
Previously Vicky has worked as a caregiver and health assistant, with years of experience in palliative care. Steven has a secondary and tertiary teaching background, particularly in South Auckland, interacting with many different cultures.
Steven holds the National Diploma in Funeral Directing, and their son Oliver is part of a caring family team. They are available 24/7 – you will not be answered by a message service. For more information phone 0800 80 4663 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
