In 2006 an opportunity arose to purchase a garage and car showroom on the corner of Barrack Road and Portfield Road in Christchurch. By the end of 2009 the old buildings had been demolished and a new purpose built funeral home designed and built.

The new funeral home offers ample parking for clients, comfortable private lounges in which to discuss arrangements, private chapels of rest and a Ceremony Hall for funeral ceremonies to be conducted.

Tapper Funeral Service is proud to serve the people of Christchurch and surrounding areas from this funeral home.
