Frederick Thomas 17 September 2020

Thank you Diane, Gary and Rebecca for helping our family at a very sad and hard time. Your helpfulness and professionalism was greatly appreciated by us; as was your compassion and warmth.

Jessica Sutherland-Latton 24 August 2020

Dianne of Exit Funerals guided our family through the passing our our beloved father, John. From the very first encounter her dignity and discretion exhibited a profound understanding of a process that is unfamiliar to most of us. Her calm expertise elevated our entire experience of Dad's passing. We felt John and ourselves were intimately cared for, and that allowed us to deepen into this precious time. Dianne allowed our family freedom to make our own choices, then supported them with impeccable, understated service. Her care and preparation of Dad took our breath away. We hold her in great respect for her most refined calling, and unreservedly recommend her to all at your time of need.

Yvonne Sutherland 24 August 2020

Thankyou for your patience and understanding Diane, in helping us organise a wonderful celebration of John's life. You took our family ideas without fuss or hesitation, particularly the transport of casket by boat, all the way from Portobello to the Harbour Basin, and the transfer for the last part of the journey. We had so much comfort in having John at home for the night and believe it or not , after it was all over I felt a great calmness, instead of grief. Diane, you had a great and comforting presence throughout,and the whole family were aware of this. We send you a heartfelt thankyou for your kind and professional help and the memories of this "celebration" will remain with with us.

Thelma Black 17 August 2020

We were recommended Exit Funeral services by an acquaintance when our dear mum passed away, we found the service and care they gave to our small family second to none .Thank you you Exit Funeral services.

Eleanor Kitt 24 August 2020

Thank you all so much for the care you gave to Malcolm following his passing, our family really appreciated the sensitivity, empathy and consideration you showed us as a family during this time and my daughter and my niece appreciated the opportunity to prepare his service sheet.  We thought the setting at the Crematorium Chapel reflected our brother’s love of the ocean and the use of the utility rather than a hearse fit with his love of motorcycles and other vehicles.  

We would not hesitate to recommend you to our friends and extended family.

Niki Jarden 21 August 2020

Exit funerals were wonderful to deal with in the passing of two family members within months of each other. They were very knowledgeable, had great advise , were caring and friendly. Nothing was a problem and they handled everything quickly and efficiently and with great communication too. As a family we would highly recommend Exit Funerals.

Ann and Pippa 20 June 2020

Pippa and myself (Ann) wish to say how supportive and professional Gary was in handling the final journey for my husband (Pippa's Dad). Barry died suddenly just before the Covid19 lockdown and we were unable to have a funeral service. Gary made it possible for us to say our goodbyes in a very sensitive manner, for this we thank him. We would have no hesitation in recommending Exit Funeral Services.

Robyn Pritchard 18 June 2020

Things were done very quickly and easy. Diane and Gary were excellent to work with.

Madelon White 05 June 2020


I was impressed with the way you presented my mum when I went to say my final goodbye to her. She was lying in a bed rather than a coffin, which is a much nicer way to remember her. The casket was everything she would have wanted. The Chapel was warm and welcoming. I would highly recommend anyone I know to come to Exit funerals.

Ronald Landaus 01 October 2018

Because of our circumstances & geographical problems Exit were instrumental in facilitating a convenient outcome at a time when the family had no idea or direction regarding funeral arrangements. Exit were responsive, friendly and dispelled the biggest fear by being affordable

Lynne Mahs 01 October 2018

I was delighted with all aspects of this service.We wanted a dignified reasonably priced service. We had a number of our own ideas eg open coffin, family pet present and Gary made it easy to achieve. The entire cost was about half that of any of the companies in Dunedin. I would highly recommend Exit Service for making a very differcult time less stressful.

Fiona Donald 29 September 2018

Gary at Exit Caskets and Cremations made a very differcult situation incredibly easy, he came within half an hour of my first phone call and walked us kindly and carefully through the whole process. He went above and beyond anything I might have expected with his thoughtfulness, helpfulness, and his overall demeanour. I would very highly recommend him and his company without hesitation.
