Welcome to Geoffrey T Sowman

COVID-19 has changed the way we live, work and play. We are all in this together.
What hasn’t changed is our steadfast commitment to honouring your loved ones, respectfully and with dignity. As an essential service we will continue to deliver professional services to be proud of.
We are well prepared, and have put in place new ways of working that will protect our staff and your family. Our customer service and hygienic standards are of the highest standard. We won’t compromise on this.
We may not be able to bring communities physically together for a Funeral Service, however, we can bring you all together via our web stream facilities and other modes of technology.
Our team is empathic, innovative and are there for you. Please talk to us.

We believe it is the small personal details that matter when arranging a funeral and it is the extra service that we provide, that makes the difference. Our team of locals are passionate about providing the highest level of care possible and helping families to arrange a funeral service that is a unique and personal remembrance.

We offer a full range of funeral facilities and amenities, with the large and modern Mayfield Chapel available for services, a dedicated catering lounge and crematorium. Sowman’s cater for all of Marlborough through to Kaikoura and the surrounding areas.

Our services include burials, cremations and full monumental supply. Sowman Monumental are registered Monumental Masons who can supply quality workmanship for memorialisation, and offer additional services such as restoration and repair.

Included on this website, is an option for you to design your own monument, and then come in and talk to us about additional options and for a quote.

We hope the following information is helpful to you and we are always available to answer any questions you may have. Please do not hesitate to contact us, at any time.
