Welcome to Austin's Hertford funeral directors

Austin’s Funeral Directors in Hertford is located on St Andrew Street, a short distance from Castle Hall in the centre of Hertford.

Austin’s of Hertford, formally trading as Alfred Scales, was acquired by the Austin Family in 1997.

The arrangement office was relocated from Church Street to Millbridge in 2007 and to St Andrew Street in 2023. Families wishing to visit their loved one prior to the funeral service may do so here in our Chapel of Rest.

Parking is available in St. Andrew Street Car Park nearby.

Funeral plans and prices

What to do when someone dies...

When a loved one dies many people feel overwhelmed and are unsure what to do. It is quite usual for the family to contact a Funeral Director immediately.

At Austin’s, we provide a 24-hour service to support families at this difficult time.

Where do I start

We offer a choice of 3 funeral plans

With over 300 years funeral experience, we are proud to be Hertfordshire’s leading, family-owned and operated, funeral director.

The Austin family is committed to the continued provision of a caring, sympathetic and sensitive service to the bereaved and their loved ones.

  • You can buy a plan for yourself or on behalf of someone else
  • Plans can be personalised
  • Plans can be done jointly
  • Monthly payment options available
  • Extra wishes can be added e.g. song choices

Memorial Dove Release

Our funeral price list

All funeral directors are legally required to publish their price list for a standardised set of products and services.

This is to help you think through your options and make choices, and to let you compare prices between different funeral directors (because prices can vary).
