Spencer and Peyton were professional and efficient at all times. They went out of their way to ensure a difficult time was made as comfortable as possible and I highly recommend their service. All the staff were empathetic and extremely helpful, kind and compassionate.

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.
