The compassion shown by all staff is excellent and they treat our departed loved ones with dignity and respect. I used Spencer and Peyton for my mother's funeral in 2015 and now in 2020 for my father's. Sadly the covid outbreak has severely affected how the funeral can be conducted but Katy and Daren have been so helpful in getting us through these hurdles. If you want to be certain your wishes will be followed through with dignity, kindness and efficiency, use Spencer and Peyton. Definitely recommend this company.

We used Spencer and Peyton for my brothers funeral who were professional and compassionate and couldn't do enough to ensure the day ran smoothly Scott was our contact during the process, who was absolutely excellent. From the minute we met him he showed us such compassion, made us feel so comfortable and did everything he could to ensure the arrangements went to plan. Nothing was too much trouble for him and we really felt we were in safe hands. Would highly recommend and we appreciated everything they did to ensure my brother was cared for and had a great send off.

About Us

We have now opened a small office in London Road, Hook.

By being independent we believe we can offer our families an individual service and a homely atmosphere. Our philosophy at Spencer and Peyton has always been to treat every client as if they are a member of our own family, treating all our families with the utmost respect and compassion.

Each family we help with is different. Everyone has different needs and wants and we will always endeavour to fulfil their requests. We have organised funerals with vintage vehicles, horse drawn hearses and specialist transport, such as a motorbike hearse and even a pink hearse.

We can arrange green funerals and pre-paid funeral plans. We are also experienced in organising national funerals and international repatriations.

Our team is always happy to discuss arrangements either in the office or at the clients’ home, if they feel more comfortable there.

Please be assured we are here to help at a time when you need it most.

  • 5 Hailey Alger 14th Aug 2019

    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.

    Liz Harris replied
    Thank you Hailey for your very kind comments, Daren and the team here consider it an honour to be allowed to look after your Dad and we send you all our best wishes at such an awful time for you all. Kind regards Elizabeth Peyton-Harris

  • 5 Andrew Sawyer 21st Aug 2018

    Sadly the second time in a year we’ve found ourselves needing the services of Spencer & Peyton and again the journey of saying the final goodbye’s too loved ones was made easier by Darren and his Team.  From the initial consultation where all the fees were explained and transparent, to the advice & information given to help with the process with never a ‘hard sell’ on any additional services - a very much ‘can do’  approach with a quiet professional in the background but available ‘on the day’ service  The Celebrant - Jane Gant was fantastic and couldn’t be faulted for her compassion, empathy and delivery of the Service - A big thank from Julie & myself for delivering a beautiful service a on tough day.

    Liz Harris replied
    Dear Andrew and Julie, On behalf of Daren and the whole team here at Spencer and Peyton, we would like to thank you for having taken the time to write such a lovely review, we all really appreciate it. We have also passed these comments onto Jane. Kind Regards Elizabeth

    The best. Very kind and very professional. Been treated as special and valued customer. Always there for everyone and very friendly. Daren was the little angel that had answer the phone when I discover my husband was dead and I had to choose a funeral director. The best decision I’ve done through this painful process which Spencer & Peyton made it very easy. They took care of all the details even minor. Very and highly recommended.

    Liz Harris replied
    Thank you Cheila, Daren is not in the office this week but I will make sure he has a copy of your comment. Regards Elizabeth

  • 5 Maria Burns 9th Apr 2018

    Scott was very considerate and kind when organising my late husband John's funeral. He made the process simple and straightforward and we were very pleased with the service at Basingstoke Crematorium and Nikki, the celebrant, was very caring and the service was so lovely and emotional. This helped a lot during a very sad and emotional time for my children and I.

    Liz Harris replied
    Thank you Maria for you kind comments, I will make sure that Scott and Nikki have a copy. Kind thoughts Elizabeth

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you arrange a funeral?

You can arrange a funeral by choosing a funeral director who will help you organise all of the details.
