Our History

In 2013 the vision for the Natural Funeral Company to open in Dannevirke began, the doors opened in January of 2014 with Leah Kelly-Frith. In 2015 Leah and her husband Dave Frith, decided it was time to start their own locally owned and operated company and there began Kelly Funeral Home. Since 2015 Leah and Dave have served the Dannevirke and outer communities with the utmost respect and compassion.
Leah and Dave earned a high name in the community for themselves and for Kelly Funeral Home.
In the beginning of 2022 Leah and Dave decided it was time to move on and the business was purchased by The Lychway Funeral Directors, of Palmerston North.
Local person, Elisha Hart, has joined the company and looks forward to serving the Dannevirke and Tararua community.
