A funeral service for a New Zealander who fell to his death on a night out with friends in London will be held in Auckland on Tuesday.

Clark Boustridge, 30, died after slipping and falling from a building near his home in Crouch Hill on December 12, the Evening Standard reports.

Mr Boustridge, who was known as Ray Ray, was the son of Greymouth-based jade sculptor Ian Boustridge, who helped design the suit worn by Prime Minister John Key to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's wedding in 2011.

Clark Boustridge moved to London in 2010 to pursue a career in the city and was working as a business analyst for Lloyds.

In March he married his long-term girlfriend, Sally Coleman, in her home city of Auckland.

A service will be held for Mr Boustridge at St Mary's-in-Holy Trinity Chapel in Parnell on Tuesday afternoon, according to a notice in the New Zealand Herald.

The family earlier released a statement which said Mr Boustridge "has been taken from us far too soon, but we will all cherish our memories of him".

He was a true family man, and his wit and grin produced endless laughter and happiness for all who knew him, the family said.
