what we do

Deathcare Redefined

KORU Cremation | Burial | Ceremony is a locally owned green deathcare practice led by women. Our desire to leave a lighter footprint on earth in our personal lives is evident in our professional work as we return to the fundamentals of deathcare and focus on eco-friendly practices and products to serve our community.

On-line Essential Cremation Package

A streamlined package that is compatible with the $2500 CPP Death Benefit , is designed for those who are clear about their choices and for those who are currently experiencing a death event.

If more guidance is needed to better understand your choices and to access more personalized services, KORU’s comprehensive options would be a better fit. 

A core belief for KORU is that all death events are profound human experiences that are best attended to through deeply thoughtful care and attention. KORU’s experienced and licensed deathcare guides (funeral directors) are uniquely qualified to offer their professional guidance and support for families who are looking for comprehensive cremation, burial, ceremony and terramation options.

What Our Families Say

On behalf of our family, we would like to extend to you and Rebecca our sincere appreciation for your help, support and compassion during our difficult time. Everything was done professionally from our first meeting through the funeral and afterward. Your kindness and attention to detail really helped us and we are very grateful. Our dad would be pleased with the whole service, as we are too.

This being the worst experience of my life to date, Ngaio offered a sense of calm and showed so much compassion as she supported myself and family through a devastating time of our lives! I would recommend Koru, to anyone who wants to be supported through such a process! Thank you for all you do!


Ngaio and Rebecca have created a kind, compassionate and highly organized container to support the grieving family when a loved one has died. They communicate clearly; their expertise is second to none. I so appreciate their gentleness and ethical standards that they have created at Koru. I have recommended them to many of my friends. Thank you, Ngaio and Rebecca- you are, no doubt, gifts to so many in making the post death process so much more supportive and sacred.


Our experience was very smooth and easy. My biggest concern with the planning and execution was that there would be a problem activating the services when the time came. My father did in fact pass away somewhat unexpectedly at about midnight, but one call and things ran smoothly. All contacts with Koru were easy and professional. Very well done


To Rebecca and Ngaio,

“Thank you for all your gentle support. You made a very painful process less so by being there for me and helping me figure out how to navigate my way.

i reflect back and feel your gentleness and support…..I’m so grateful
