What people say about Academy

Eileen B.27/06/22
I want to sincerely thank Academy Funerals for all their help in arranging a wonderful send-off for my dear 97 year old mother in April. Brent Ruru was lovely to deal with, and a special thanks also to Sharyn for driving my precious Mum on the day of the funeral, and also attending Mum's interment. That was much appreciated by the family. I would thoroughly recommend Academy Funerals.

Brent and the team were amazing, when my mum passed away, they were very accommodating with our cultural needs.
They were an amazing support to our family through this very sad time. I would highly recommend the team at Academy.
