Bereavement Support & Advice

Dealing with the death of a relative or friend is always extremely difficult and we recognise that as well as support from family and friends you may also need help and advice from other organisations.

  • The NHS Bereavement Helpline - can be contacted between 8.00 and 8.00 every day (Tel: 0800 2600 400).
  • The Good Grief Trust website has lots of information on how to cope with a bereavement and advice on where to turn for support and guidance.
  • The website also has practical information about what you need to do when someone dies.

Our cemeteries at Sytch Lane and Strawberry Lane are open to visitors from 9.00 until 4.30 every day and for funerals from 9.00 until 3.00 Monday to Friday. Please contact us on 01902 696000 for more information.
