The National Bereavement Service (NBS) provides practical guidance free of charge to families going through a bereavement

Most people will have to take responsibility for all the practical arrangements after a death, at least once in their lives. For others, it can be many more times. In any circumstance, loss is a difficult and often distressing time.  
The National Bereavement Service (NBS) offers free practical and emotional support to guide you through what needs to be done, whether that’s finding a reliable funeral director or understanding more about the legal side of bereavement – and will provide emotional support to those who need extra comfort during this challenging time. They’re there to help – whatever that may be.
