JJ Burgess & Sons Funeral Directors have proudly provided professional funeral services in Welwyn Garden City, Hatfield, Knebworth, St Albans, London Colney and Codicote in Hertfordshire for over 170 years. Since 1839, we have been independently run by the Burgess family and today every one of our funerals is conducted in person by Mr. JJ Burgess, the current owner of the firm. As a family-run business we fully understand how emotional individuals and families can feel when dealing with a bereavement, and provide a friendly and caring service to everyone who comes into our office. We’re available on the phone to be contacted at any time, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week or you can fill in the form on this page. At JJ Burgess & Sons we’ll take you through each step of the funeral process clearly and carefully, and help you to tailor a ceremony to suit your specific requirements and your budget. Our fully trained and experienced funeral professionals will offer comfort and support and take you through the options available to you. We can handle every aspect of your funeral planning and can deal with catering, sympathy flowers and floral arrangements, creating fitting and appropriate memorials for cemeteries and churchyards (and dealing with appropriate permissions and insurance, plus maintenance and renovation) and funeral stationery. We can also offer a unique fleet of funeral vehicles for you to select from, including both a 1937 and 1954 Rolls Royce, a Harley Davidson motorbike with sidecar hearse, a white Daimler and a Victorian glass carriage. JJ Burgess and Sons Funeral Directors offer a range of bespoke pre-paid funeral plans to allow you to arrange all your future funeral expenses and plan your perfect send-off. We can also provide non-religious or humanist funerals and eco-funerals too. No matter how the times have changed, the essential values have remained and our traditions are still very much a part of the way in which we conduct our funeral services in the 21st century.

Justin and his team at JJ Burgess & Sons supported our family when my brother passed away. At a time when your whole world has been turned upside down, his support, not just on the arrangements for the funeral but personal support to the whole family helped to ease the pressure at an extremely difficult time. Every detail, no matter how small, was addressed to make sure that Daniel's life was celebrated in the exact manner he would have wanted. I could not thank or recommend Justin enough.
