Helen Carter

Funeral Director

My interest in the funeral profession grew from the exceptional caring support and guidance of the funeral home at the time of a family bereavement. My passion for funeral directing is driven by a desire to serve families as well as the funeral directors that helped my family and I. Outside of work I enjoy Kayaking and I am looking forward, in the future, to tramping the great South Island Tracks with friends. Renovating and landscaping properties has been both enjoyed and many times endured. I am looking forward to settling in to my new forever home in Hamilton and enjoying the company of my family here.
