Locally Owned Funeral Director


All staff at Evans Funeral Services Ltd have been chosen because they care for people. It is our intention to make the time of a death as easy as possible for the families we serve. At Evans Funeral Services we offer a modern approach supported by traditional family values. We are here to help you choose from the many options available, to create a meaningful farewell based on your beliefs, lifestyle and culture, and those of the person who has died. Whether it be a large public gathering, traditional church service, tangi, or private farewell, we will work with you to ensure your needs, and the needs of your family, are met.

Evans Funeral Services has proudly served the Gisborne community since 1908. We are members of the Funeral Directors' Association of New Zealand (FDANZ), and Selected Independent Funeral Homes (SIFH), an international organisation which recognises excellence in funeral service.

We can also assist you with memorial work, through our monumental stonemasonry business Bay Stonecraft, a member of the NZ Master Monumental Masons Association (NZMMMA).
