Saying goodbye


Saying goodbye is the hardest thing to do, especially when it’s someone that we love, honour and respect, a loved one, a close friend or esteemed colleague. At Twentymans we have been serving the people of Thames and the wider Coromandel Peninsula community for in excess of 148 years helping friends, family and loved ones say goodbye – with dignity, honour, love, pride and professionalism.

Our aim is…

  • To provide you with the peace of mind, understanding and direction that enables you to travel through the process of designing and creating the ‘right way’ to honour your loved one through their final journey.

  • To make the process as simple and honest as possible, to be helpful and caring, respecting the different needs of the individuals involved in the conversation, and paying personal attention to their wants and needs that enables us to blend and create a sensitive and appropriate ceremony.

  • To take care of as much of the organisation of the process in a gentle, professional way that enables you to have the time and space to reflect and share the experience with friends, family, and loved ones.

  • Our professional team of funeral directors really are second to none – so rest assured that you are in great hands, every step of the way. From pre-planning to budgets, notices, flowers and catering, notifications and directions, remembrance sheets and music, local and overseas friends and family – we can help you achieve 

    the right blend of ceremony, fun, laughter, inclusion and memories that makes it a special day – and to be remembered for the right reasons.

So wherever you are on the journey – let us help you to discover the things that you need to do, to make it the best day possible.
