Peasgood and Skeates
Your local independent family
Peasgood & Skeates was formed in 2012 as a merger between H. Peasgood & Son and R. Skeates. Established since 1847, H. Peasgood & Son have a long and proud history of serving the bereaved in their local community of Saffron Walden and surrounding areas. R. Skeates Funeral Directors was also a family run business based in Duxford, founded by Ron and Rosemary Skeates in 1965.
In 2014 we merged with the highly respected Cambridge Funeral Services, based on Newmarket Road. Their professional reputation in the city is second to none.
Our website has been developed to assist those making funeral arrangements. Should you need to speak to someone in person, we have trained staff available to help 24 hours a day - you only need to telephone. It is our aim to provide an efficient, dignified and respectful service to the bereaved and relieve you of the worry of the funeral arrangements.
A funeral service offering the highest standards
At Peasgood & Skeates we are totally committed to offering the very highest standards of service and care to the bereaved in Essex, Cambridgeshire and the surrounding area.
Losing someone you care about can be one of life's most difficult experiences. We believe we have an important responsibility to care for the bereaved, not just by offering support during the funeral but also in the days that follow.
As a family business, we have total commitment to the individual needs of the bereaved and an overriding respect for the deceased. These qualities have been recognised many times, with awards which have included Regional Funeral Planner of the Year and National Funeral Planner of the Year.
