About Us

The original company (Decra Art & Blast Limited) was formed in 1968 and taken over by then employee John Julian and his wife Lynne in 1980, with the name changing to Decra Art Limited.

Directors John and Lynne have since been joined by their son Adam (now Managing Director) in 1992.

Decra Art Ltd is conveniently located over 2896 square metres in Sydenham with office and showrooms at 36 Battersea Street, joined to these are 6 stores and factories offering a full manufacturing plant and the largest range of Headstones in New Zealand stocking approximately 7000 stones and being able to manufacture almost any style headstone.

We are open Monday to Friday from 7.30 - 5.00pm and can meet outside these hours should the above times not suit.

Although purchasing a headstone is easier in our showroom we are always more than happy to visit at your home should getting to our showroom be difficult.


We undertake all work throughout the Canterbury, Christchurch & Banks Peninsula Region
