About Us

Part of Hawera since 1926

Part of the Hawera community since 1926, Cleggs Funeral Services started out as McCormick’s Funeral Services and was operated by Davy McCormick until his death.

Michael Clegg purchased the funeral home in 1978 and in 1980 McCormick’s became the now well known Cleggs Funerals & Monuments.

Michael Clegg operated Cleggs until his retirement in 2013 and now remains a valuable consultant to the business. Susan Clegg is part of the team and she will often be your first point of contact when you come into the office.

Located in central Hawera on High Street, Cleggs are able to offer a range of funeral services for our families. We have a large, modern chapel and a very comfortable reception lounge which can provide full catering services.

Our reputation for professional and caring service comes from our experienced funeral directors and support staff who are passionate and dedicated to ensure families can have peace of mind at a very difficult time. It is important to know that you can depend on Cleggs professionalism to help you with all of the arrangements to ensure a funeral service flows smoothly.

Cleggs Funerals & Monuments is an InvoCare New Zealand Ltd funeral home. InvoCare New Zealand Ltd is the largest provider of funeral services within New Zealand, with a comprehensive network of more than 20 funeral firms and associated businesses. By joining together we are able to share professional development and industry knowledge, and set higher standards in the funeral profession nationwide. To ensure we continue to set higher standards, phone calls are recorded for quality assurance and training purposes.
