Funeral planning can be overwhelming when you have lost a loved loved one. Our directors at Harwood Park can help to make it that little bit easier for you during a difficult time, helping you every step of the way.
With the price of funerals rising each year, many people prefer to take care of the cost now.
The Hertfordshire Funeral Plan is a pre-payment funeral plan exclusive to Austin’s Funeral Directors. The plan is customised to your requirements, making your loved one’s send off personal and unique. It covers funeral charges and third-party payments such as cremation charges and minister’s fee.
You can choose additional options such as obituary notices and funeral stationery. We also offer a range of tributes, keepsakes and memorials which are often used as a healing gesture for people who have lost someone close.
Hertfordshire Funeral Plan is a completely bespoke service – you can make it as simple, or elaborate, as you wish.
We are committed to providing you with excellent standards, attention to detail and stress free planning.
The Hertfordshire Funeral Plan, its fund and administration are protected under an independent trust and operated in conjunction with Austin’s Funeral Service. The investment of its assets are undertaken by professional trustees.
If you move to an area outside our service, on death, the current value of your plan can be claimed by the local funeral director who will be carrying out the arrangements.
