The death of a spouse can be shattering and overwhelming, leaving individuals grappling with grief and a myriad of complex emotions.

The journey of grief is unique to each individual, and there is no right or wrong way to cope. However, amidst the ups and downs, there are guiding lights and resources that offer help along the way.

Our comprehensive guide to Finding ways to manage the death of a spouse offers insights and practical tips to help with this tumultuous time, such as:

How to find compassion from those who care when discussing funeral arrangements

The process of arranging a funeral can be daunting, yet discussing funeral wishes with a trusted and experienced funeral director can provide immense comfort and support.

Keeping communication channels open

In times of grief, communication becomes a lifeline, enabling individuals to share their pain, memories, and hope for the future. We advocate staying connected with family and friends, acknowledging the new reality, and embracing companionship in various forms.

Honouring memories

As time passes, the pain may soften, but memories endure. We encourage cherishing these memories and sharing stories and experiences.

Practical Matters

Amidst the emotional turmoil, practical matters such as finances, legal affairs, and administrative tasks can feel like an uphill road. We provide guidance on seeking professional assistance to ease the burden.

CPJ Field’s Never Alone

At such a difficult time, we fully recognise the periods of loneliness and the importance of embracing a new life whilst trying to move forward with courage. Our Never Alone programme is developed to offer practical help and emotional support to those feeling alone and provides different avenues to greater connection and new friendships. We provide online resources, community events, and local support groups and this is available online and within our funeral homes.
