Your best interests are the priority of everyone who works with us
In a modern world of big business and corporate companies it is sometimes difficult to maintain the personal touch and give the service that was once expected from everyone. Hemming & Peace Funeral Services try to preserve that standard that was set by our predecessors. To that end, our staff are all local residents who know the local traditions and are familiar with the Stratford-upon-Avon, Alcester & Henley-in-Arden Churches and Clergy. It helps us to help you when you are arranging a funeral service for someone special and who is dear to you.
Meet the team:
Having attended school in Stratford-upon-Avon Nigel embarked on a career in Structural Engineering before a second career in Mental Health support services where he became the Chief Operating Officer for a Stratford based mental health charity, was a member of the Stratford Mental Health Forum and was Chair of the Warwickshire Supporting People Providers Forum.
In 2006, Nigel and Graham Hemming founded Hemming & Peace Funeral Services where Nigel embarked on his third career in funeral service where he and Graham built the business founded on excellent customer service and care.
Nigel lives in Stratford and remains very committed to the local community; as a member (and past President) of Stratford-upon-Avon Rotary Club in 2011 he took on the role of Course Director for their Shakespeare Marathon, which raises tens of thousands of pounds for local good causes (such as the Shakespeare Hospice), and he is a Trustee of both Lifespace Trust, who work in local schools mentoring young people, and Heartlands Legacy Trust, who have a remit to support local people.
Nigel is also past chair of Alcester and Stratford District Round Table and is now a member of both Stratford and Alcester 41 Clubs, through which he remains an honorary member of Round Table and still enjoys helping bring Santa to the Streets of Alcester, Stratford, and surrounds each December.
Sandra has worked in the Funeral Industry for over 14 years and joined with Hemming & Peace Funeral Services in Henley-in-Arden in February 2017.
She says ‘I feel privileged working with and helping families at this sad time guiding them and hopefully making this process easier for them to deal with. I treat all family`s how I would like to be treated.’
She is married and and has two lovely step children and three grandchildren. She loves having family catch ups. She also enjoys holidays abroad and in this country too.
