Hi Tim, Kia Orana and greetings from myself and my grateful family.


Gratitude is one of the most important things in the world. In the words of John F. Kennedy, "We must find time to stop and thank the people who make a difference in our lives." However, sometimes it can be difficult to find the perfect words to express that gratitude.


Though Covid-19 had its restrictions and the difficulty it created around the passing of a my loved one. You came and made it effortless for me.

With all that you prepared, was not unnoticeable by my family, including myself.


Thank you so much for honouring my Mother Dawn. Thank you for the love and support. Thank you for caring.


How can we ever thank you enough for all you've done? We're forever grateful. "Every life is a story, thank you for being part of mine, my mothers, and my families story."

We value you, we value your professionalism, your communication and your sensitivity to our loss of our Queen. Thank you for stretching the boundaries and limits so we could have our Committal Family Service.

From mine to yours, thank you.

Warmest Regards

Jay and Mia Tere

Kia ora Tim,

I hope you are well. I am a granddaughter of Rosita Dixon and just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate the send off you gave our Nan today. 

I personally, never thought we would have to bury any whānau member under the extraordinary circumstances we find ourselves in at the moment. Its been surreal to say the least and we've all been on edge waiting for our Nan to be laid to rest, not really knowing how things would go. 

It's also been so tough watching (from a distance) my dad and his siblings navigating such a hard time with covid restrictions. Therefore, being able to see our Nan on her final journey is something we will forever be grateful for. 

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the care and aroha you showed Nan and our whānau.

E mihi kau atu ana ahau ki a koe e te rangatira.

Tēnā rawa atu ko koe,


Nāku iti noa,

Tim provided a kind, compassionate and comprehensive service from taking my Mother into his care upon her death, to supporting the family through a difficult time, to arranging all we asked for and more.
We are touched by his sensitivity and the way he made things seem so straightforward, when it was apparent there was so much to do behind the scenes. Thank you Tim, for a memorable day which we felt was a fitting tribute to our Mother. We truly appreciate all your effort and hard work.

I would like to thank Tim and his staff for making our sister's final farewell a good one.
He was so loving and caring from the start and even helped me through some questions while on video as we were unable to make it back. Tim was very compassionate from the start and had our sister's dignity in his heart from the very start. Thank you once again.

Where do I Start. From the moment we called Tim from the Hospital to pick up our Dad, he was AMAZING. They way he looked after our Dad was like he was still alive. We loved the way he would talk and joked with Dad, even when he thought we weren't looking. We had an amazing send off for our Dad, Tim made sure everything was perfect for us. Cant recomend Tim enough. Much Love and Respect to you Tim.

I would like to express my utmost gratitude to Tim Hutchins for his services. COVID-19 restrictions left our whānau in a difficult position of not knowing how to proceed and what to expect for our nans final send off. It has been a surreal experience to say the least, but seeing the aroha Tim showed to our Nanny and our whānau settled many of the uneasy feelings I had. Then, being able to Zoom in and watch nans journey to her final resting place was a gift that I will appreciate forever.
We finally have some closure knowing Nan has been laid to rest, and are forever grateful. Thank you for the aroha you have shown to our family.
Ngā mihi kau atu ki a koe Tim❤️❤️❤️

Tim was so amazing, his care for my brother Alby was truely genuine.

Tim’s kind words and calm nature made everything flow so well. He provided valuable information while decisions were made and always carried himself with a high standard of professionalism.

Hi Tim and all your Team

I would like to thank you personally for the outstanding service that was provided by Tim Hutchins Funerals for our dear Turia Ngauora. During this difficult time coupled with COVID 19 restrictions, those of us that could not be there felt truly appreciative of the level of warmth and care that was displayed by you all to our family in Hastings. We could only support from a distance but could see that our Mama Turia was well cared for and looked absolutely beautiful in her attire and surroundings. Much aroa (love) and blessings Tim and thank you again.
