A.H. Cheater Ltd

A H Cheater are proud to be the only family owned funeral directors in Romsey and North Baddesley, continuing 3 generations of service to the local community since 1966.

Mr Albert Henry Cheater , a former Chief Fire Officer in the town, first established the business and he was succeeded by Sam Fields. Peter Peace carried out his duty as funeral director in the town with much dignity, care and professionalism for over 30 years.

Simon and his son Michael Peace now look after the day to day running of the business. Simon went to school in Romsey and then joined his father in 1981. Once a keen sportsman, he now enjoys keeping livestock and has successfully shown them at local agricultural shows over the years.

Michael became the third generation in 2003. He was also schooled in Romsey and was head chorister at Romsey Abbey. Having played both Cricket and Rugby locally, he now lives on the premises in Romsey with his family.

Assisting them as Funeral Directors in Romsey are Giles Sadd, who joined in 2004 and previously worked in Winchester for 12 years, and Lizzie Cox.
Our complete and modern facilities include dedicated Chapels of Rest set in our large beautiful garden. We have ample parking and are just a short walk from both town centre and the Registrar’s office.
Simon and Michael and their experienced team are proud to continue the family’s tradition with the emphasis on traditional family care.

North Baddesley

In 2017 A H Cheater opened a small branch in North Baddesley to provide a more personal service to the community and surrounding villages. Bereaved families are looked after by Graham Lusty who joined the company in 2011 after service in the Royal Marines. Graham served on tours to both Iraq and Afghanistan over 8 years. Our new and modern premises in North Baddesley has a private chapel of rest and sufficient parking for clients. Graham works closely with the team in Romsey to provide a personal service and continue the Peace family’s traditions.
