BRISTER & SON SERVICES

What to do when someone dies

Support - whenever you need it.

When a death occurs, contact us as soon as possible.
A funeral director will be available to deal with questions and to begin making the necessary arrangements. 
When people pass away in hospital, it is not always necessary for us to attend immediately. Our staff, however, will be at hand for reassurance and advice.

Bereavement

Here For You

You are not alone.

When you lose someone you love, the grief can be all-consuming.

Everyone is different and you will react to the loss in a way that is unique to you.

It can help to talk with someone outside your immediate family or to someone who has been through a similar experience.

When you are grieving it is normal to feel disbelief, numbness, anger, physical and mental pain, guilt, depression and regret. Thinking you're seeing or hearing someone who has died can also be a common experience. Which can be both distressing and comforting.

The old adage ‘time heals’ is true but the reality is that grief takes a different course for us all and sometimes we need a little help.

You can talk to religious ministers, hospital chaplains or people from organisations that help bereaved people. The following are available for support:
