We have created a practical funeral guide to help you if you are planning a funeral during the coronavirus/Covid-19 pandemic.
Losing a loved one is difficult at any time, but the coronavirus pandemic can make things even harder if you are not able to say goodbye in the way you would want to.
During a time of bereavement many people want to be comforted by family and friends, so it may be very distressing not to be able to have everyone around you due to all the restrictions.
It may feel particularly isolating attending the service on your own/with few others, especially if you know lots of people would ordinarily have been present. Not being a part of it may also be very difficult for those who cannot attend. Our funeral guide includes some ideas on how to feel more connected.
We also cover things like where to find support with funeral costs, making arrangements for their faith and accessing bereavement support in our funeral guide.
