Funeral Guide is proud to welcome you as we launch our blog. It’s here to support you and your loved ones through difficult times. Our mission is to help the bereaved and we hope you’ll find the news and features we bring you here to be informative, thought-provoking and comforting.
If you’ve already explored our website you’ll see that we’ve provided help and resources full of the practical information you need when someone dies; from who to call first; to how to support a family member, friend or neighbor who has lost someone dear to them.
We’re honored to include so many respected US funeral homes in our directory of caring professionals who are there for you, day or night.
Here on the blog, we’ll be covering a wide range of end-of-life topics, including funeral trends, etiquette and customs, coping with grief and celebrating the lives of those who meant so much to you.
Visitors to Funeral Guide can search for a local funeral home and read reviews from families who have already used their services. You can also browse the website’s Help & Resources and blog pages, which provide practical information and details of local resources to access, as well news and features with a focus on bereavement.
Our dedicated team is made up of people who have been touched by the death of a friend or loved one in their lives. And we’re aware that grief is a complicated process, which we each experience in our own way. Wherever you are on your own journey through bereavement, it’s our aim to be here for you, through difficult times.
We’ll also be introducing psychotherapist Annie Broadbent, to answer your questions about grief in our regular feature, Dear Annie. Annie is the author of best-selling self-help book, We Need to Talk About Grief (How to Be a Friend to the One Who’s Left Behind).
The book was inspired by her own bereavement following the death of her beloved mother, Caroline. Whether you are missing a loved one who’s died, or wanting to reach out to a bereaved friend, you can write to Annie at DearAnnie@funeralguide.com.
Funeral Guide co-founder Ed Gallois said: “However recently or long ago someone has died, there can be times when you need that extra help – whether it’s because you’re unsure what to do or say, or because when someone dies, it can make you feel alone.
“Funeral Guide’s blog is a meaningful part of our mission to help the bereaved when life is very difficult.”
