I would like to thank Sharon and all the staff at William Peacock & Sons in Huntingdon for arranging my father's funeral. I honestly couldn't have asked for more. They were extremely helpful and respectful. Everything was explained to us very well beforehand and the day went exactly to plan. The funeral itself was perfect. Thank you so much for everything you did for myself and my family and for helping us through it every step of the way.

Kindest regards,
Sophie

Sadly, this is the second time in recent years that we have used William Peacock & Sons and they have been very helpful, caring and understanding. They did everything they could to make sure that the process went as smoothly and calmly as it could. Sharon, Sam and Stephan were, as ever very professional and kind.

At a time, when we were all struggling, emotionally, Mark, Sharon, Sam and Alan and all the memebrs of their team, gave us time, patience, guidance if asked, endless compassion and kindness.
They, collectively, made a really unlovely occasion, lovely.
Thank you to all.

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.
