About our Bushey funeral home

Welcome to Hemley Funeral Directors in Bushey. We have a long history of caring for families during their time of need, and we are proud to be part of Watford's heritage after many years of helping the community we love.

Our story began in 1850, when a local man named John Field needed an apprentice for his building firm. He went to a local school and chose a young man called Harold Hemley. They worked as partners for many years, until John passed away, which was when Harold took over the business and called it 'Field & Hemley'.

Harold's two sons, Harold and John, were enlisted in the army. On their return home, they helped their father at work, and then together they decided they wanted to dedicate their services to funeral undertaking. They crafted beautiful coffins in their workshop, and used cars and carriages from Hempsalls, Waford.

In 1970, they decided they needed their own funeral home, which they built themselves at 35 Harcourt Road, Bushey. They served the community they loved for many decades, until they decided to retire at an old age. Families always described John as a cheerful and helpful man who always wanted to help in any way that he could.

The values of our founders and the Hemley family remain at the heart of all we do, serving families from Bushey, Bushey Heath, Oxhey, The Rookery and the rest of Watford.

We are here to make a difficult time a little easier for you, so please call us at any time and we will be here to help, no matter what.

Hemley Funeral Directors were selected because of prior recommendation and we were grateful for this.

The service provided, led by Kay Currant, was excellent. It was sympathetic and efficient and we were guided through the process of the funeral so that we could rest assured that all would go smoothly. It did.

The Funeral Notice on the website was a very good idea albeit there is only facility for donations to be made to a single charity. It would be useful if more than one charity is to be supported to have this ability added to the Funeral Notice.

Was I satisfied with the services provided by Kay and her team at Hemley Funeral Directors? Yes indeed I was.

Kind regards,

Paul.

An amazing professional supportive service from start to finish at Hemleys Bushey

Kay Currant was outstanding with a genuine caring and considerate personality. She ensured that everything was considered and went over and above throughout the whole process to achieve the best for outcome in what is a difficult time.

Alan, the Funeral Director on the day of the funeral went meticulously over the details prior to the day to ensure the smooth running from start to finish.

An absolutely outstanding service from start to finish and I would have no hesitation in recommending Kay and the team to anyone arranging a funeral.

It is without question an amazing company as even a week after the funeral I was given a courtesy call to check in on me and make sure all was well with me.

Thank you all so much

Karen
