Seddon Park Funeral Home is part of the Propel Funeral Partners’ network of funeral homes. Propel Funeral Partners is the second largest provider of death care services in New Zealand and Australia. Matthew made the decision to join Propel as he firmly believe it to be the best way to ensure the Seddon Park and Sadliers legacy continues well into the future. Families can be assured that Seddon Park and Sadliers will continue to serve the families of the Waikato in the same excellent way they have done for over 30 years.

This means that along with the very latest developments in funeral services, such as the webcasting of services, professionally designed service sheets and visual tributes, state-of-the-art embalming, and eco-friendly caskets, you will still receive individual, personal service and always be treated with kindness, consideration and warmth.


“We believe that our task is not only to ensure that funeral arrangements are completed with professional efficiency and calmness but also to understand and respect the feelings of the people concerned. It is our desire to ensure that funeral arrangements are meaningful and appropriate.”
