Bereavement Support

When someone dies, there’s a lot to arrange just when you’re having to deal with many unfamiliar feelings. It’s a distressing time and a demanding one too. You may want to remember the past just as the immediate present demands your full attention; you may have concerns about your future too.

At a time like this, practical advice and reliable information will help you through the first few weeks. This guide tells you what happens immediately someone dies, and during the first week: how to arrange a funeral or ceremony, who you need to inform and when you need to contact them.

Coping with loss is a challenge, and feelings of grief can be overwhelming. This guide will show you who to turn to for help.
