F.W. Hagedorn Memorial Chapel

A funeral home that will allow you to lay your loved one to rest with honour and respect.

FUNERAL PLANNING
 

We take care of all aspects of the funeral service from the crafting of the memorial arrangement to the service itself. We are Buller’s only registered and qualified funeral director and understand the difficulties that come with losing a loved one. We'll guide you through everything step by step and do all we can to ease the natural difficulties that come at a time like this.

MONUMENTAL
 

The memorial of a loved one is essentially a lasting symbol of that person, and needs to reflect what they meant to those close to them. We cover all monumental requirements including new, renovations, additional design and installation.

"From the get go Rob's gentle manner put us at ease.

We knew instantly Mum would be well looked after. When we had the viewing she looked so well, it was hard to believe she wasn't just sleeping. We cannot thank Rob enough for his support, guidance and even much needed humour through this difficult time.''

F. W. Hagedorn in front of hearse

OUR HISTORY

          In 1897, FW Hagedorn & Sons, Cabinet-makers of Westport began making coffins for the local community. So beautifully made were these coffins that the community urged Hagedorn to apply his care and craftmanship to funeral directing and thus FW Hagedorn Funeral Services was born.

 

          While the business hasn't stayed in the Hagedorn family it has remained a locally owned and family run business, with Robert Hoetjes (and his family) being the current caretakers after taking over in 2009.

          Robert has been a qualified and registered funeral director since 1992 so you can rest assured you are in experienced and caring hands.

 

Grief Support

The loss of a loved one affects us all in different ways. After the service has been held and all the well wishers have gone the real mourning begins. There is no right or wrong way to mourn and grieve but the process can be challenging and difficult to understand. If you feel you need extra support at this time, speak with us about how we can help you navigate these difficult waters.
