Claire Austin - Membership Committee Chair

Claire Austin is Managing Director of Austin’s Funeral Directors.

Austin’s was established in 1700 and Claire is the tenth generation to run the independent family business.  Having expanded in recent years, Austin’s now operates nine funeral arrangement offices throughout north and east Hertfordshire and owns Harwood Park Crematorium in Stevenage.

Claire has led Austin’s to win thirteen business awards, including the FSB Service Excellence Award in 2012. In the same year, Claire was named National Chamber of Commerce Entrepreneur of the Year.

In our first 32 years, we gave out more than £2 million in grants to help local people and organisations.

We could not have realised this without the generosity of our supporters and our aim is to build on the these rock solid foundations and be even more impactful for our community over the next 30 years.Robert Stewart - Chairman
