A Family-run Business That Cares
Banks Brothers was one of the oldest names in the monumental industry in Auckland in the early 1900’s and was established as a family business. The original premises were located next to Schofield’s car dealership in Newmarket. The company disappeared after the depression of the 1930’s but the name reappeared some 40 years later in the form of a one man operation in Papakura. Brothers Greg and Dean Beatson purchased the business in 1985 and later changed the name to Banks Memorials to better reflect the companys activities. It is still a family owned and operated business that provides a personal and specialised monumental service. Both Greg and Dean have had extensive experience in the headstone industry prior to 1985 mainly involved in the area of memorial installations throughout the wider Auckland and Waikato areas.
This experience gives great depth to their knowledge of cemeteries around the Auckland and Waikato where most of their work was located.
The staff at Banks Memorials pride themselves on the effort that they put into assisting families designing unique headstones and getting the look and feel you want to create as a tribute.
