Memorials – headstones and plaques

The Staff from Avenal Park Funeral Home

For many, a headstone is much more than just a cemetery marker. It is also a way to ensure that loved ones are remembered for generations to come. Memorials carefully selected, designed and crafted can be a reflection of a person’s life and can create an atmosphere of peace, joy, and lasting memories for all those who visit and pay their respects. Avenal Park Funeral Home assists Southland and Otago families in organising a lasting memorial for their family.

At every stage, from the initial design, through to checking of the layout prior to the blasting of the stone, families are involved in the process. Quotes can be given prior to work commencing. We are members of the New Zealand Master Monumental Masons Association, so you can be assured we offer a high standard of service and products. We also clean, repair and restore existing headstones and plaques.

Please do not hesitate in contacting us to discuss options. You can phone us on 0800 033 925, email office@avenalpark.co.nz or visit our showroom at 75 Fox Street, Invercargill.
