  • If you choose to arrange the funeral with us, you will be given the option of a complimentary Funeral Notice. We will set it up for you using the details discussed during the arrangements. All we need is an email address.

Rating 5.0
During what was a very sad and stressful period, the staff of Peter Johnson were all extremely professional, friendly and courteous and guided my brother and I through the process, despite the covid restrictions. From arranging for us to have a wonderful humanist service; beautiful flowers; photos for use in the order of service and memory board; plus the arranging of the music - everything was just perfect. Special thanks to Kay who was always on hand to answer any queries which may have arose in a calm, friendly and succinct manner.
