About us

We are family owned and run funeral directors based in Hertfordshire. Our head office is in Potters Bar with a branch at Radlett.

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.

Our profession is suited to a family company. We see working with the deceased and the bereaved as a vocation. Charles 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 has continued through four generations. Today the company is run by Charles, he is helped by his wife Liz and their daughter's Victoria and Charlotte. Charles brings nearly 50 years' worth of experience to the company. Victoria re-joining the company in 2018, Victoria has worked in the funeral profession and related crematoria industry since 2008. Charlotte has also recently joined the company having worked and studied in other fields. Together, Victoria and Charlotte bring a wealth of experience and fresh ideas to the company.

Women have been arranging funerals and taking care of families at Nethercotts since the very start of the company. Alice, wife of Charles Nethercott, the founder, was a pioneering woman finding time to be a mother to five children, the local midwife and funeral director! Today, Victoria 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.

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