Help with bereavement

You can get practical advice/help from a funeral director, the family doctor, a solicitor, welfare officers and personnel departments at workplaces, your minister of religion, a social services department or Citizens Advice, a health visitor or district nurse who attended the deceased may also be able to help. If the death was in hospital ask the sister or hospital chaplain. Please also see our Registration Service’s Practical Help for the Bereaved.

Support and Comfort

You may feel that you want more than practical advice/help, and that you need to talk with someone sympathetic who is outside your immediate family or with other people who have been through a similar experience. There are several organisations in England and Wales who offer this kind of support. A list of some of these organisations are given below.
