Sharron and the team at Huntingdon have been amazing. They have supported us at this difficult time and continue to support us through to the internment stage. Every time we have contacted them they have been supportive, caring and professional. The funeral was everything my brother and myself wanted for our mother. Their support has continued and arrangements made to unite mum ashes the grave holding my dads ashes according to our parents wishes. I thoroughly recommend this company for their care and compassion at at
a difficult time.

From the first phone call I made,not knowing what to do, I was put at ease straight away. Everything seemed so daunting to start with but the way everyone at Peacocks looked after us and guided us through each step it just flowed perfectly.

From the first contact to the last the service has been exemplery; Sharon and colleagues has shown such a caring attitude and professionalism all the way through, never tiring of having to explain repeatedly the process and decisions we as a family had to make. We never once got the hard sell which also made process easier. On the day of the funeral staff were there to guide us each step of the way without taking over and guided the family carrying the coffin in a thoughtful and helpful way, I'm sure there hearts must have dropped at times when Mum's coffin tilted slightly at one point, but they just helped without a word to make the coffin bearers - sons, feel bad.
We didn't know what to expect when starting out arranging a funeral but we couldn't have asked for any better guidance and help and Mum got the funeral she would have been happy with.

William Peacock's were very professional and kind funeral directors that allowed us to give our Dad a service personalised just as we wanted. Guided us through the process and gave good advice which took away some of the stress for us as a family. The hearse was splendid, attendants smart and respectful, and the funeral service was a fitting tribute to our Dad’s 97 years of life. Special thanks to Sharon and Mark and the team for making this possible.

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,

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.
