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.

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.
