Eagars Funeral Services Ltd - Funeral-Link Taranaki - has been serving the Taranaki community since 1950.
Established in Stratford by Roy Eagar, the business was continued by son John and is now managed by grand-daughter, Casey Martin, who joined the company in 1992.
In 1997 John and Casey opened a branch in New Plymouth to meet their client’s family’s needs and that of a migratory shift of the Stratford population. Roy Eagar’s grandson, William, returned home from Wellington in 2004 to join the company and continue to provide Taranaki families with the caring professionalism they have come to expect.
Eagars Funeral Services is a member of the Funeral Directors Association of New Zealand (FDANZ) and has achieved their Griefcare accreditation. It is bound by the association’s Code of Ethics and Conduct and employs qualified, registered staff, which brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the company.
The staff at Eagars Funeral Services respect the choices made by families at a time of loss, and work closely with them to ensure that the service provided is as special and unique as the person they mourn.
Regardless of whether a funeral follows time honoured traditions and rituals, or is “outside the square”,
Eagars believes that the most important aspect of the funeral service is that it is carried out in the way a family has requested. Funerals do not need to be “one size fits all”.
