Peter and Julie Beauchamp

Founders of the business and inspiration to the entire team

Founders of the business and inspiration to the entire team

While technically retired but still very much actively involved, even after 45 years in the funeral industry, Peter and Julie are the Head of the Beauchamp Team. The funeral industry has been their life. From humble beginnings in Marton in 1981, expanding to Feilding in 1991 and Palmerston North in 1996, Peter is one of Manawatu’s most experienced in the field. Beauchamps are proud to have established the only locally owned Crematorium in Manawatu in a bid to satisfy every family of their wide range of personalised services from the moment a loved one passes away until the very end.
Peter and Julie count themselves lucky that 3 of their children and 9 grandchildren live close by in Feilding, with 1 son and 2 granddaughters living in Montreal, Canada (thanks goodness for video calling).

Amongst many other wishes, Peter wants a superior Hearse to reflect his love of cars at his funeral.
Julie wants loads of flowers and a huge party afterwards at her funeral (preferably after she has enjoyed a lengthy retirement).
