E Morris Jnr | Simplicity Funerals Wellington

The name E Morris Jnr holds a historical association with funerals in the Wellington area of years gone by.  Today as “E Morris Jnr Simplicity Funerals”, we combine our history of caring professionalism with considerations towards affordability.

Manager Andy Ellis, a fully qualified FDANZ-associated funeral director says “These days there are a range of costs to consider”.

“There’s no question funerals have become more expensive with rising costs of cemetery and cremation fees, so we have devised four pricing plans to suit people’s individual needs. We also offer options for pre-paying and pre-arranging funerals in a safe, secure manner, through the FDANZ Funeral Trust and our staff are always willing to offer obligation-free advice.’

Andy Ellis

Andy Ellis has been in the industry for 20 years, between him and his partner, they have 5 children. There is always a lot of fun had when they are all together, and with a huge extended family they are always busy socially. You will see Andy and his family at many events, sporting fixtures, concerts and the like. Sports are also a passion but rugby and cricket are definitely the favourites. After playing both for many years, Andy is now only playing cricket when his aging body lets him.

The funeral industry is all that Andy has ever known.   After leaving school at 16 he was thrust into one of Canterbury’s busiest funeral homes (John Rhind Funeral Directors – Christchurch) where he achieved 14 ½ years of service to the families of Canterbury and its wider areas before moving to Wellington. Andy is passionate about the Simplicity Brand and what that means in how we can help people who are either budget orientated or those who want value for money, but also a respectful and affordable service.
