To advise, so that you create a farewell you will cherish.
To respect – all cultures, religions and peoples.
To be transparent, so there are no unexpected costs.

The oldest funeral home


Twentyman’s is the oldest funeral home in New Zealand and celebrates 150 years in Thames. Read our story.

‘Show me the manner in which a nation or a community cares for its dead and I will measure with mathematical exactness the tender sympathies of its people, their respect for the law of the land and their loyalty to high ideals.’ - William E Gladstone

The Undertaker is a story about the Twentyman’s philosophy led by Director Adrian Catran.
