[R] How to estimate a hazard ratio using an external hazard function

I would like to compare the hazard functions of two samples using the
Cox proportional hazards model. For sample 1 I have individual time-to-
event data. For sample 2 I don't have individual data, but grouped
data that allows to obtain a hazard function.
I am wondering if there is an R function that allows to obtain a
hazard ratio of the two hazard funtions (under the proportionality
assumption) taking into account the censoring of the data?
I am aware of survexp and survdiff functions, but I am not sure if
that is the best way to do what I need.
Any help will be highly appreciated.
