Let us lend a helping hand

Helping families and friends honour their loved ones.

Where heritage and life are celebrated

Every life deserves a special time of honouring & celebrating.

Welcome to Grinter's Funeral Home

Proudly serving the people of Cambridge, Hamilton, and the surrounding areas with dignity and sincerity. Nothing is too much to ask and you will always be number one.

Funeral services are not about us, they’re about you and the person you are honouring, a time to say goodbye the way you want.

Our primary role is simply to go quietly about our business, guiding and supporting you – and ensuring you get what you want, no matter your budget.


The government has agreed that we run an essential service in our community. It’s just as important as ever to say goodbye to our loved ones in a loving and meaningful way.

Therefore, we are pleased to advise that we are still having small private funeral services. Because the health and safety of all is paramount to us, we will be restricting the numbers at these gatherings. Please give us a call to talk about this service and other options we can offer you, such as Live Streaming the funeral service.

A funeral service is important for two reasons

A funeral gives people a chance to share their feelings while being supported by family, friends and others in the community who have known the person that has died.

It’s also a time to celebrate the life of that person, to hear stories, make tributes and share memories; the good times and funny moments, their favourite music and unique contributions he or she has made.

Children grieve too, so it’s good to make opportunities for young ones to be involved in some way if they have also been part of the person’s life.

A funeral's purpose and value

The funeral, the days leading up to it, and the burial or cremation are important early steps in coming to terms with the death of someone close. From the time of the death and leading up to the funeral, many people take comfort in doing things they have always done as a family.

You can make a funeral meaningful and especially appropriate for the person who has died by considering the elements that make up this public ritual, including the venue for the service.

A pre-planned funeral can help ease the stress

"I'd like to take this opportunity to express my heartfelt gratitude to Jim and his team for their wonderful caring and professional service, and a beautiful day of celebration they created for my Dad's funeral today in Cambridge. Jim guided us through the entire process without a hitch, and surprisingly for a funeral, there was joy and much felt love in the air. With much gratitude, Lynda."


"A year ago today my much loved grandmother passed away. We were privileged to have Jim and his amazing team at Grinter's take care of all the arrangements, and they did it with such compassion and respect. Today we had a beautiful, touching moment as we placed Grandma's ashes with her mother. As he did a year ago Jim took care of everything. Thank you for making our final goodbye so special."


"I would like to thank Jim and all his staff. When my brother John passed away suddenly and unexpectedly whilst on holiday in NZ, I didn't know what to do. Jim helped with this difficult process, he even drove back to the morgue in Hamilton at short notice in the evening to allow my son to pay his respects to my brother. Everything was taken care of with care and detail. Thank you from all John's family and friends."


"Their kindness shines through with everything they do for you. They are patient and very professional. They take care of the things you don't realise need doing. Their service is second to none. I would not have coped during the process of my mother's funeral if it were not for Grinter's forward thinking, especially the ongoing support from Jim Goddin. He was there every step of the way. Thank you sincerely from the bottom of my heart."


"A huge thank you to Jim for your professional, respectful and personalized service, working alongside us all to help farewell our father. There were many compliments regarding the service, especially the service sheet and bugle player. It was a very fitting farewell with every detail attended to, confidently reassuring us with your professionalism. We'd like to express our sincere gratitude to you all for your amazing level of service."


"I would like to send Jim and the team at Grinter's Funeral Home a big thank you. Jim, you and your team made the very hard process of planning and caring for our late brother just a little bit easier; from the moment we arrived to Cambridge in a very hard time until the farewell that we gave him.
