About Us

Simplicity Bereavement funeral homes are owned and operated by the Murray family. The Murray family are 4th generation funeral directors and have been involved in the funeral industry for over 40 years starting in Auckland in the 1970’s.

Simplicity was established in 2000 by Tom & Lesley Murray, serving the Waikato community for over 16 years and the Hawkes Bay community since 2013. We are proud of our heritage and are passionate about the responsibility we have of caring for our families. We believe that families come to us because our family values are reflected in the dignified services we provide. We have had many opportunities to help bereaved families create memorable celebrations and memorials to their loved ones. Helping families celebrate the lives of their loved ones has given us an opportunity to acknowledge the close community ties that New Zealanders share.
