Graham Twyman

Founder & Director

Twyman & Holmes Est. 1900's

Twyman & Holmes has been established since the early 1900s and is owned and run by Graham Twyman and his qualified team, including his daughter Shena and his Grandson Joshua. Graham worked for another local family business but when they were bought out by a large concern, Graham made the decision to come away and open up Twyman & Holmes Funeral Directors.

Our involvement begins at your first contact and extends even beyond the day of the funeral. As soon as we are notified of the death, we will gather preliminary information and ascertain when we can arrange the removal of the deceased. The family’s wishes are our primary concern and after initial contact with the family we establish when it will be convenient to make the final arrangements.
