Hemming and Peace were quite fantastic from the beginning to the end of a funeral that was full of uncertainty and far from simple to arrange. Nigel, Trace and Chris were an absolute delight to deal with, warm and friendly, they could not have been more helpful, thoughtful and cooperative. Their thoroughness was particularly evident in the time they took to make sure we were entirely happy with the order of service and the printed version was of a particularly high quality. The performance of Nigel and his team at the funeral service and burial was highly professional and particularly dignified. I would like to thank them all for everything they did and I could not recommend them more highly.

At a really difficult time we found Hemming and Peace provided a professional and caring service. Nothing was too much trouble and their kindness and thoughtfulness was very much appreciated.

Absolutely brilliant throughout. From our first experience with Chris in the office to the hassle free compilation of order of service, Dad did not take a great photo and they made him look great! Nothing was too much trouble and then on the day Nigel and the team were effortlessly respectful and calm throughout. Could not fault and highly recommend.

The whole team at Hemming and Peace provided an exemplary service regarding the funeral of my father in June 2023. We were kept fully informed of each stage of the process and they were always there if we needed a chat. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

I used Hemming and Peace in 2012 for a family member. In July we sadly lost our Brother and there was no question about returning to them. Nigel and his team are simply amazing and take all the stress of the funeral. Their, kindness, respect, courtesy, professionalism and attention to detail is second to none. No chances are taken and they will double check every aspect of your requirements. I found myself changing my mind every day and they took that in their stride and accommodated me on every occasion. The staff are magnificent and.nothing is too much trouble. Jayne and Melissa were wonderful as were all the staff behind the scene. I would highly recommend Hemming and Peace because they do what ever you ask without question. It was a joy to have their support throughout such a difficult time. I cannot thank them enough.

Hemming and Peace made organising my Mother’s funeral a calm and peaceful experience. They were efficient and thoughtful and helped me through every step of the process with care and kindness. What could have been a traumatic and confusing experience felt clear, easy, bespoke and supported. The funeral was precisely what I had wanted for my Mother and I would highly recommend this caring and friendly funeral director.

Highly recommend Hemming & Peace. We unfortunately lost our stepfather this year but the professional service & the supportive words helped us through everything. They over delivered on everything & are still supportive weeks after the funeral.

Hemming and Peace arranged our mum’s funeral recently and we would recommend them without reservation. The whole firm, from Jenny in the office, to Nigel and his team on the day, displayed the utmost patience, compassion and respect. They all ensured our mum had the send off she had requested, and were very reassuring and kind during this difficult time for our family.

Hemming & Peace were fantastic dealing with my 91 year old mother's cremation from a distance. We live in Eastbourne and arranging the cremation at Oakley Wood Crematorium could not have been easier. The whole team is professional, efficient, immensely kind and super helpful. They delivered a lovely send off for a much loved lady.

The help and support I received when I arranged my Dad’s funeral was exceptional. Nigel Peace and his team took us through the often difficult process with such honest professionalism and genuine care. Nigel lead the service as our celebrant and it was delivered with such sincerity and great humour which is just what I wanted and needed in my personal journey in saying my final farewell to my Dad. He is a very talented and perceptive man. I felt very reassured and confident in the ability of the whole team in ensuring that everything was as I wanted. They listened, they made suggestions and I felt very much that they actual cared! I would highly recommend.

Nigel Peace recently conducted the funeral service for my 102 year old mother. I was most impressed by his care and attention and determination to ensure that her long life was captured in his eulogy. In my opinion he went above and beyond the service I was expecting and I can thoroughly recommend the services of Hemming and Peace.

We used Hemming and Peace as I had been to a funeral where they were the undertakers and I was very impressed. My mum passed away so I contacted them. Firstly it took over 10 days for them to collect mum from the hospital which seemed a long time ! I had to do a lot of the chasing for things to be done which I really didn’t feel like doing. On the day of the funeral my one request was to go past mums house ( the next street) and they didn’t. This was very upsetting for me as my mum loved her house. At the service the hymns were written in the order of service but the music only played for one verse of the hymns even though 5 were printed. I was very upset and disappointed as you only get one chance of getting a funeral right and sadly they didn’t.
