Facilities

Located in Bethlehem, Tauranga, our office and family rooms were designed to feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible. All clinical care and preparation of the deceased is completed offsite, in private registered facilities. This provides comfortable separation of the funeral home’s operations for the families of the deceased. After preparation and care is complete, the family will decide if the deceased will remain in our care in Bethlehem or is returned home leading up to burial or cremation.

Venues

Tauranga offers many venues where a funeral or farewell can be held. REFLECTIONS can discuss your needs directly to establish the most appropriate venue.

Pre-Planning

Pre-Planning

Many individuals and families choose to pre-plan. The depth and scope of planning varies. Peace of mind for many is in the knowledge that their key wishes have been recorded, leaving fewer decisions for the family to make when death occurs. Others choose to fully plan and pay for arrangements in advance. REFLECTIONS’ pre-paid funds are lodged in a secure trust fund which can only be drawn upon with the production of a death certificate or under special circumstances by request of the participant.

REFLECTIONS are ready to discuss any pre-planning options without obligation.
