Bereavement Support

We understand that loss and bereavement can be a particularly difficult time, we try and help as much as we possibly can during and after the funeral.

We have a range of books and literature in our branches, including a specialist children’s range.

There are also a number of local and national support groups and helplines that you can also contact:
