Mark and the team at William Peacocks were very professional in their approach to our needs in this very sad time of ours and we can't thank them enough for everything running smoothly with the funeral arrangements and the day itself.

This is the second time my family have used Peacocks. Sept 2019 and sadly again in March this year.

Our experiences have been good.
Staff were efficientt, supportive and helpful.

During the restrictions I can safely say the service the staff provided was very good. I was concerned about organising a funeral over the phone but I need not have worried. Sharon was as great appreciating the difficulties. An outstanding lady, professional yet kind and understanding.

On the day of the funeral Andy was lovely. He took responsibility and it all went smoothly.

Thank you to the Huntingdon team.

I would not hesitate to recommend William Peacock and Sons after they looked after us so well following my husband's death. There was always fantastic communication between us and they were always there to answer any queries. The whole process was made a lot less stressful because of their wonderful care. Thank you so much for looking after us.

Mark and the staff at William Peacock dealt with the arrangements when my father died in 2018. When my mother died this year I had no hesitance in asking them to deal with her Cremation. They liaised with the Coroners office for me and took care of Mum until the cremation could take place.
Overall I was very pleased with the service and courteous nature of the company.

From my first phone call to being dropped off at our home after the service everyone was lovely, caring, kind, considerate and respectful.



Just a little hiccup when we went to visit my husband some days before the cremation, he was referred to as 'her' so I had to correct the person. It hurt at the time, but was soon corrected and apologised for.
Response from William Peacock & Sons Funeral Directors

Everyone I dealt with regarding my father's funeral was very helpful and I was kept fully informed at all times about the proceedings of the day. Linda,the celebrant Sharon suggested, was fantastic and really captured the essence of my Dad. I had lots of lovely comments from friends and family about the service.
