Bereavement is a highly personal and often traumatic event. When someone close to you dies, you may need advice and support.
Practical help is available from a funeral director or from your family doctor, but many agencies can also offer more guidance about what happens next and what you need to do. Simply talking to someone sympathetic can be a big help.
Letting people know about the death
In addition, you may need to close accounts or cancel or change insurance details, subscriptions, agreements, payments or direct debits.
You can use the community directory to find organisations who can support you with your bereavement.
