Covid-19: Bereavement and Coronavirus Support

Local information and guidance to help you if a loved one has died during the COVID-19 pandemic.

During the COVID-19 outbreak we are, together, facing a loss of life, often under very difficult circumstances.

This guide aims to help you with practical information such as how to register a death, through to planning a funeral and information on bereavement and grief. There is also a section on further advice and support.

Thank you to those who have lost a loved one for helping us put this guide together.

Would you like to talk someone about your loss?

Grieving is important to us all, and there is no one way to grieve. It often encompasses a wide range of emotions, including (but in no particular order) anger, despair, sadness, numb, relief, worry, anxiety, frustrated and fear.

If you would like to have someone to talk to about your loss, then please contact the Bereavement Support Partnership. They are there to help you through this difficult time
