Spencer & Peyton was founded in 1961 by Bert Spencer and Nip Peyton at our Basingstoke Branch. We are now really proud to be the oldest independent funeral directors and monumental masons in Basingstoke with the third generation of the families now working alongside us.

The whole experience although extremely difficult, John, Scott and the team were considerate and helpful, they looked after the family as if they had known us for years.  The way the fixed cost of the funeral was simple and meant we didn’t have to focus on irrelevant matters, they made the situation so easy, fitting and cost effective.  They helped choose a vicar who fitted the needs of the family. As a family, we are not regular Church people, however, the Vicar Michael Banfield, was an excellent choice. He is kind, gentle and very easy to talk to and  he calmed us down and provided the family with unspoken comfort at a time of deep shock and grief. He conducted a very moving and fitting service, having guided us the whole way through.  Thank you all on behalf of Veronica Kathleen Ford ( Bonnie Ford ) family.   Marilyn,  Glenn, Laurie, Peter, John, Maureen, Robert John, Rosie and Judith

Vicky Haycock 24th May 2017

Couldn't be any more helpful. Very respectful of our wishes and also went above and beyond for us. Did an amazing job with my grandad even down to the little touches. Thank you.

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 Christine Bagan 8th Feb 2017

    The service we received from Jon & the team was exceptional. As a family we were treated with compassion and patience and as a result were able to give our mum the most beautiful of send offs. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was taken care of from flowers, order of service, headstone etc. Thank you to everyone involved for giving us a beautiful day as opposed to a sad & sombre one. Mum would have loved it.

    Liz Harris replied
    Thank you for your kind comments. It is lovely to hear that you were able to have a beautiful day to think about your mum and to be with your family. Jon and the team.

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. They can help you decide whether to have a cremation or burial and what type of service to choose, as well as additional options, such as music and flowers. You can find out what happens at a funeral and compare funeral directors on Funeral Guide.

What are disbursements?

Disbursements are additional costs for a funeral service that are paid to third-parties, such as florists, celebrants and burial fees. The funeral director will usually charge you for them and then pay the suppliers themselves.

How can I get help with funeral costs?

If the cost of a funeral is not covered by a prepaid funeral plan, or the estate of the person who has died, you may be able to get financial help from the government’s Bereavement Support Payment or from War Disablement Pensions, charitable funds or budgeting loans.
