About us

We are family owned and run funeral directors based in Hertfordshire. Our head office is in Potters Bar. We have branches at Radlett and Borehamwood.

We conduct funerals throughout Hertfordshire, North London and beyond.

Our aim is to offer an unrivalled service of the highest standard.

Every funeral is different. Whether the funeral is religious, semi-religious or non-religious, we are guided by the people who come to us. We listen carefully to the bereaved and honour the wishes of the person who has died. This is probably our greatest strength.

Charles Arlingham Nethercott founded Nethercotts in 1911 in South Mymms on one very important principle namely; to provide a courteous, friendly and caring service to families and supporting them during their time of need. At Nethercotts we are proud to hold true to these founding principles.

The family business of Nethercotts has continued through three generations.
Today the company is run by Charles and his wife Liz. Charles brings over 46 years' worth of experience to the Company.

Steve Richardson (Dip. F. D), our Senior Manager, joined the firm in 2001, having worked in the profession since 1990. Steve heads a professional and dedicated team. We are very fortunate in that most of our staff stay with us for many years, from our drivers and bearers to our Funeral Directors, Managers and Company Directors.

Women have been arranging funerals and taking care of families at Nethercotts since the very start of the company. Alice Annie, wife or Charles Arlingham Nethercott, was a pioneering woman finding time to be a mother to five children, the local midwife and funeral director! We are proud to continue this tradition and many of our funeral arrangers are women.

As well as arranging funerals the company also offers a comprehensive range of memorials, enabling Nethercott's to provide a complete service for families.
