Try looking for Hertfordshire - that's what Herts is.

The prefix for calls is something like 010 but I'm not sure.

Well its St Albans for a start and the UK national dialling code is 01727, UK international dialing code is generally 44, the tricky bit is you have to drop either the 0 or the 1 from the national dialling code, sorry to be vague but dont have to dial in to UK very often, your local telephone company should be able to advise.

I'm told by my American wife that the code for calling UK from the US is 01144, then you drop the first 0 of the area code, so the number for St Albans is 01144 1727 followed by the number of the company.

Good luck, John
