The Bereavement Service provides a sensitive, empathetic approach to the individual needs of relatives, at a time of loss.
Our Bereavement Service provides support and information for bereaved families when a patient has died in hospital. The team will liaise with the family to provide the medical certificate, co-ordinate cremation forms where appropriate, hand over property where required and give advice on registration and arranging funerals where there is no next of kin.

We support bereaved children and their families to help alleviate the pain caused by the death of someone close. Our services are free, funded through the generosity of our supporters. At Grief Encounter, alongside our personal support, you will have access to resources that can help you communicate how and what you are feeling, and coping with your loss. You will find steps to take, and information on ways to channel your grief positively. At Grief Encounter, our vision is that every bereaved child in the UK receives the best possible help, recognition and understanding following the death of a family member, loved one, friend or teacher.
We exist to meet the needs and overcome the isolation experienced by people over 18 who have been bereaved by suicide. We help around 7000 people each year, including through our national helpline and local support groups.
We offer counselling and emotional support to adults, children, young people and families who are dealing with a life-limiting illness or bereavement. The service is available to all users of Treetops Hospice Care services and people registered with a GP practice in Derby city or Southern Derbyshire.
WAY is the only national charity in the UK for people aged 50 or under when their partner died. It’s a peer-to-peer support group operating with a network of volunteers who have been bereaved at a young age themselves, so they understand exactly what other members are going through.
