My brothers and myself would like to say thank you to you and your team for all your help for arranging and doing dads funeral. It was beautiful and I think we gave him a good send off.

Pat - August 2022

Good morning Peter & co,

We have now reflected the day & can look back on it already with fond memories & take comfort in how the space was filled with such love for my beloved sister. 

I would also like to thank you all for the tremendous job you did & continue to do for bereaved people at such a difficult time. 

I can’t imagine it’s an easy job but I thought it important to say just how smooth you made the process at such a difficult time for us all. 

I am so pleased that you were all there to support Jessica & our family, right up until the final moments of goodbye. The only shame is that you didn’t get to meet the wonderful person herself. 

With best wishes,


Amy - July 2022

Thank you so much for everything you did for us to have a lovely funeral for Neville.

Everyone remarked how well it was organised and how nice it was. 

You've been very kind and understanding and have done a wonderful job. Again thank you from both of us.

Eva - June 2022

Can I firstly take this opportunity to thank you ever so much for your help with my Wife's funeral. From the first day I met you at our home you were absolutely brilliant and your professionalism during the whole process was impeccable. 

I felt that during the whole process from start to finish that I was being guided by a good friend and I appreciate everything that you did, from the walking in the pouring rain to the diversion/stop that you arranged passing Lesley's workplace on the day in the cars. I truly cannot say thank you enough.

Steve - March 2022

Thank you so much for all the sympathetic and professional help that you and the rest of your team provided after Scott's passing. Everyone at the funeral in person or on-line has said how moving it all was, and much of that was a result of the way the sad event was organised. We will certainly recommend your services to anyone who is in the unfortunate position of needing them in future. Many thanks again.

Peter & Eileen - February 2022

On behalf of my self and the Parsons family, I would just like to pass on a huge thank you to Sean and everyone else who has worked behind the scenes at Peter Smith and Son. From the first phone call to the day of the of the funeral, Sean made the whole process so much easier and the day couldn't have gone any better, nothing was too much trouble.

Such a lovely family run business and great at what they do, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Peter Smith and Son, Thank you

Gemma - January 2022

I want to say a huge huge thank you for all you have done, you have been the biggest help since the day after my dad passed away all the way through.  My dads funeral could not have been any better, I would not have changed a thing. One thing I said I really did like is that you were still smiling and joking with us about the weather which just showed you completely understood the ‘no morbid or misery’ aspect of the day. Thank you for sorting everything for me, I wasn’t sure what to expect with planning a funeral but I definitely wasn’t expecting the service I received from Peter Smith and Son. My dad looked perfect, the coffin was perfect and so was the transport. And I am so very grateful for how neat my dads grave is with the grass laid back on top it’s little things like that which make a huge difference. 

Thank you all again. 

Jessica - June 2021

Thanking Peter, Sean and all the staff at Peter Smith and Son for providing an excellent no hassle funeral for my Mother, they were very polite, understanding, friendly and extremely helpful. Peter and Sean made this difficult process uncomplicated and straightforward, which I was very grateful for. On the day of the funeral they made the whole funeral run trouble free and really looked after us. They provided an exceptional service.

Theresa - May 2021

My mother died on Oct 24th 2020 after two very traumatic weeks in Hospital, so when choosing a Funeral Director, I was looking for someone who could guide me and my family through the whole procedure with as little stress as possible. From the very first telephone call with Sean Smith, I felt confident and comfortable as through his efficiency, patience, and kindness he showed me that he had everything under control at all times.

The funeral was arranged locally and in these 'Covid' times (only a small amount of family were able to attend the funeral), Sean was able to source all my mum's favourite hymns, sung by various choirs and these were played at the funeral, filling the church with music (my mum would have loved it)! Sean spent hours on this task as he had to match all the music with the words in the 'Order of Service' (who knew that the same hymn could have so many versions)! We used a local Catholic Church but my mum wanted to be buried with my late father in Pickering, North Yorkshire and I thought that this would be a logistical nightmare! Once again Sean took all the worry from us and contacted the local council, gravedigger and local Catholic priest who officiated at the burial. Sean's thoughtfulness and kind attention to detail throughout the whole process was fantastic!

My family and I would like to thank Sean and his colleagues for looking after my mum so well. They were professional and efficient throughout whilst being understanding and attending to every detail, I cannot recommend them enough!

Teresa - January 2021

On behalf of all the family I would like to thank you and your team for the caring and very professional service given in all aspects of organising my parents funeral. Everything went perfectly. Once again thank you in very difficult times.
