Bereavement is a time of grief and sorrow - this is a natural and normal part of your loss. It is also unfortunately a period during which a number of matters must be dealt with. All of this can prove bewildering and stressful. The Bereavement service is here to support you during this difficult time.
The Bereavement Office is open Monday to Friday 8am to 4pm, excluding public holidays. Please ring after 10.30am weekdays, if we are unavailable please leave a message and we will come back to as soon as possible.
Viewings of your relative can be requested through the Bereavement Office once the Medical certificate has been issued. You can do this on Monday to Friday 9am to 3pm (last appointment).
To contact the Bereavement office, please call 0118 322 7059/8066.
