Home » Bereavement Support

Dealing with loss and bereavement can be a very difficult and confusing time for any individual or family. Losing someone we love is probably one of the hardest experiences many people will go through. We want you to know that you do not have to face this time alone. After the funeral, Bennetts Funeral Directors will continue to supporting you every step of the way. We are proud to offer 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.

We provide bereavement groups and courses. Some of which are designed by renowned grief counselling expert Dr. Bill Webster. They offer valuable help, friendship and guidance. Additionally, they will support you whilst you come to terms with the changes and challenges of bereavement.

It’s good to talk

Talking about death with people you care about is not easy, however, being open and honest often makes it less frightening and, it gives everyone the opportunity to plan ahead, and do what’s right for them.

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. However, talking about it with others and sharing what’s on your mind will always help.

Grief Chat

Created by bereavement experts.

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