About Us

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.

Our Simple funeral is available for £1,995 + third party costs, without compromising on the quality of the service that is delivered. Or our Full Service funeral can be tailored just how you wish, whether that be a traditional ceremony or a colourful celebration of life.
