    Very pleased with the service fr my mother's funeral In spite of a long journey and a difficult terrain on arrival, everything was done perfectly. Also the discovery that my mother was know by repute to one of your colleagues brought an element of friendliness to the proceedings which helped to cheer up a sad occasion. Nothing else to say - I simply cannot think of any way in which the service provided could be improved.

    The service provided by the staff at William Peacocks was excellent.
    Nothing was to much trouble and they couldnt be more helpful.
    Fortunately we only have to deal with these sort of occasions a few times in our live, but it was definitely made easier by the way the staff at William Peacocks handled it.

    Even though we choose a cheap funeral I feel that some members of the family could not see my mum before final goodbye due to the fact we could only visit in office hours so not suitable for family members who worked. I was told this was because of the cheap funeral we choose. Other than that I would highly recommend William Peacocks and sons. Very friendly and helpful.

    They were very professional, friendly, helpful. Just the right amount of everything, even trailing about with my wheelchair without me having to ask for help. I will treasure the 'remembrance box' as well. Thank you.

    Upon the death of my husband, I contacted William Peacock & Sons on the recommendation of my daughters colleague who had recently lost his wife. I found them to be efficient without being officious, understanding and sympathetic. They gave me guidance of the procedure following death which enabled me to deal with all that needed to be done. On the day of the funeral everything was carried out with calm dignity which made saying our final goodbyes as serene and pleasant as it could be. Since the funeral, their follow up service has been patient and courteous.

    All staff were very supportive and comforting in this very difficult time. They gave me time and space, helped as much as possible and went the extra mile.
    They were very comforting on the day of the funeral and also a funeral is a horrible thing to experience they ensured everything went as best as it possible could.
    Highly recommend.
