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.
Jayne says “I find working for a company whose values have the interest of the client at the forefront both rewarding and satisfying. Having served within the profession for twenty five years I feel extremely privileged to have helped people at what is a very difficult time.”
When not in the office Jayne enjoys socialising with friends and visiting museums and exhibitions.
