Established in 1996

Today we’re one of Sheffield’s leading and most trusted funeral homes

John & Mary Mallatratt established Peace Funerals in 1996 after growing frustrated with the limited options and care provided by the funeral companies who had taken care of their loved ones.

Peace Funerals has now grown to be a team of a dozen permanent staff committed to meeting your needs. The company won the national award for best funeral directors in the UK, being nominated for the choice and support provided to families.

They are recommended by both the Natural Death Centre charity and the independent Good Funeral Guide which states Peace are:

‘Probably everything you would want a funeral director to be…friendly, humane, attentive, calm, nothing’s too much trouble, they give you all the space you need to make your decisions at your own pace.’

Peace Funerals are totally committed to supporting you to create a funeral that feels personal and significant, and appropriate for your loved one.

  • Experienced and professional team
  • Dedicated single point of contact
  • Pioneers in providing funeral choices
  • Good reputation
  • Attentive and calm
  • Personalised funeral plans

  • Large checkmark

    Choice

    We believe a funeral should be a personal and special occasion so we let you dicate what happens

  • Large checkmark

    Affordability

    A funeral shouldn’t have to be expensive. We’ve perfected our processes so we can keep costs down

I cannot recommend Peace Funerals highly enough. Stephen Parkin was patient and compassionate in guiding us through the funeral planning and we didn’t feel pressured to do anything we weren’t happy with. The ladies in the office (Clare & Lisa I think) were extremely helpful and enabled us to visit d...
