Costs and Payments


At Leishman Funerals we understand working within your budget. To assist families during their time of bereavement we are able to work with you and provide a funeral to suit your needs and your financial circumstances. We encourage families to discuss with us any financial restraints.  

The cost of a funeral varies depending on the choice of items such as the casket, flowers, newspaper notices, cemetery or cremation fees, and catering.

Please see our page on "Direct Cremation Option" if you think that this is something that could best work for your family.  

We charge for professional services in arranging the funeral, the use of hearses, mortuary care and any additional services provided.

We would also encourage our families to make application for a WINZ payment towards the funeral account.  Criteria and application can be found by following this link.  http://www.workandincome.govt.nz/products/a-z-benefits/funeral-grant.html
