Home » Bereavement Support

Dealing with loss and bereavement can be a very difficult and confusing time for any individual or family and losing someone we love is probably one of the hardest experiences many of us will ever go through. We want you to know that you do not have to face this time alone. After the funeral, Bennetts Funeral Directors will still be committed to supporting you every step of the way. We are proud to offer you and your family a range of support resources to help you through your grief journey.

Our Bereavement services make a real and lasting difference to everyone they support.

All our bereavement groups and courses, some of which are designed by renowned grief counselling expert Dr. Bill Webster, offer valuable help, friendship and guidance. They will support you whilst you come to terms with the changes and challenges that bereavement brings.

Bereavement support services

Bereavement is the natural and painful process of grieving that follows the loss of a loved one. Without a doubt, it’s the hardest of times, but talking about it with others and sharing what’s on your mind will always help.

Grief Chat

Created by bereavement experts.

Bennetts Funeral Directors believe professional bereavement support should be free and accessible to all in need. That’s why we’ve partnered with Grief Chat, to give you the chance to speak with a professional bereavement counsellor through live instant chat, free of charge, Monday – Friday 09:00 – 21:00. The chat Box will pop up automatically on this page within those opening hours and invite you to have a conversation, should you need to speak to someone.

Caregivers in extraordinary times

‘Not all heroes wear capes’ is a booklet published by author Dr. Bill Webster.  Specifically aimed at front line workers, who themselves need every ounce of support, encouragement and help as well as our praise during sad and the most difficult times.  His knowledge on the subject of grief and bereavement is a unique blend of personal experience, academic education and practical application.
