Caring, experienced service The thought of organ- ising a funeral for a loved one can be daunting for many people during an emotional and distress- ing time. For this reason Ensom Funeral Services strive to make the funeral process as com- fortable as possible for the bereaved family. Assistance and advice are available anytime from John and Julia Ensom, who own the ser- vice. John has had more than 36 years of experi- ence in the profession and knew from a young age that funeral dire- cting was his forte. He began in the pro- fession at the age of just 17. John works full time operating Ensom Funeral Services with the support of a qualified team and Julia part time in administration. Services provided include pre-funeral plans, viewings, funeral arrangements, news- paper notices, memorial services, catering, floral tributes, organising over- seas transfers, and liai- sing with celebrants and ministers. Ensom Funeral Serv- ices understand that funerals need not be costly. To this end they provide advice on pre- paid funeral plans and other special needs con- cerning funeral services and government sub- sidies. It is the emphasis upon providing personal advice and assistance to grieving families at any time in their own home that sets Ensom Funeral Services apart. "When it comes to funerals, it s important not to rush or burden people with questions, as funeral arrangements take time," says John. When preparing a funeral, John will sit and talk with the family, explaining the proce- dures involved and pro- viding options. The ser- vice deals with all ethnic cultures and beliefs, and caters for both burials and cremations. Through collaborating with cemetery staff, Ensom Funeral Services can meet with families at their chosen cemetery and organise plots and wording for headstone memorials and commem- orative plaques. Individuals deal with death in their own ways, but John advises that people reach out to the support that is available. For all funeral advice phone John Ensom at Ensom Funeral Services. Phone 266-9942 Manurewa or 524-6765 Auckland. Viewing facilities are available in Manurewa, Manukau and Auckland.
