After the Service

In many cases, arranging a funeral keeps people so busy that they don't feel their loss fully until afterwards.

Grieving is natural and important, and it may take a long time. Many people find that others who have lost a loved one can offer valuable comfort and support. You may find the funeral services prayers and readings a comfort.

Some churches have annual memorial services (sometimes held around the beginning of November) to remember those who have passed away and you may find it helpful to attend.

Bereavement support networks, such as Cruse, can be very helpful. There are also special organisations for people who are bereaved young or who have lost a child or unborn child, or who are bereaved by suicide or violence.
