Spencer and Peyton were amazing the care they gave us as a family during and before my mums funeral were very caring and very professional. Also Jon was absolute brilliant with me and kept me updated on everything. We will definitely be putting word out that they were fantastic .

We could not have wished for nicer people to look after our Dad on his final journey. Everyone at Spencer & Peyton have been so compassionate and helpful and not once did we feel that their service was just there to make money. Not needing to choose a coffin really took the pressure off of us, and options that we didn't think about- like a lock of Dad's hair- were mentioned for us to consider. At every step I felt that Dad was treated with dignity and respect and well look after. His funeral was the nicest service I have ever been to (which is odd as it was the worst day of our lives!) I cannot recommend Spencer & Peyton more highly.
