E H Crouch Funeral Directors

At E H Crouch Funeral Directors, we serve families with the greatest care, from our funeral directors in Hertfordshire.

About us

We are E H Crouch Funeral Directors, and we have had the honour of serving families in our cherished Hertfordshire community since 1958, from our funeral homes across Baldock, Letchworth, Stevenage and Stofold in Hitchin.

The story of our funeral directors began when a local man called Ted Crouch used to let families use the chapel behind his hardware shop. This was to be the first step of his journey towards becoming one of the most valued and respected funeral directors in Hertfordshire.

Ted Crouch’s values are still the foundation on which we work upon to this day. The families that we look after are at the heart of all with do, and are our absolute priority, no matter what.

Our compassion and professionalism is not just prominent in the way we look after people, but also in our funeral homes and facilities. Some of our funeral homes have had extensive refurbishments to offer a comforting atmosphere for our families to visit, and we have a beautiful Mercedes fleet which we maintain to impeccable standards.

We make sure every aspect of our funeral services, care and facilities are of the best standards because we feel it is our duty to make sure everything is perfect for a loved one’s farewell, paying tribute to their life in a respectful and meaningful way.

At E H Crouch, we cater for all faiths, cultures and personal preferences. We are local to several churches, as well as Sri Guru Singh Sabha Gurdwara, North Hertfordshire Memorial Park and Crematorium and many more. One of our funeral managers has an extensive knowledge of the traditions for many cultures, particularly Sikh funerals.

Our Hertfordshire community is paramount to us, and we have always tried to play an active role within it. We host many events such as bereavement groups, coffee mornings, funeral plan awareness days and much more. We have supported our local care home by providing assistance and transport to local shows, and we regularly provide raffle prizes for charity events.

At Christmas each year, we hold memorial evenings which families, local clergy and celebrants come and share thoughts and memories over mince pies, mulled wine, cakes, tea and coffee. Each of our branches has its own beautiful Christmas memorial tree, in remembrance of loved ones who have passed away, and we also support the local church in Epping with their Christmas Tree donations and decorations.
