After The Funeral

Support is available after the funeral to help bereaved families

Download our Who to Inform Checklist:

After the Funeral there are other arrangements you need to make to ensure that all people and organisations that have a relationship or account with the deceased, are aware of their passing. You may not know all of the companies they had an account with, and so we have put together a comprehensive list to help you with who to inform.

After the funeral, Rowland Brothers want to ensure you feel supported. We offer bereavement care to assist you with the grieving process, as well as group sessions intended to help you meet and talk to others experiencing grief. These sessions are for you to share your own experiences, to help you through your bereavement.

When you are grieving it is easy to feel alone. Rowland Brothers will put you in touch with bereavement services and counselors to ensure you have someone to talk to, if you aren’t comfortable talking with family, friends or us. With over 150 years of experience assisting families, we understand the importance of being able to grieve your loved one. We’re here to help.

Visit our bereavement support page for useful resources, upcoming bereavement support groups, our bereavement support Facebook page and local support numbers you can contact for help. You can also contact us for help and advice with grief.

The Rowland Brothers Foundation

The Rowland Brothers Foundation charity was launched in 2015, and serves the community of Croydon by providing excellent, professional bereavement aftercare that is free of charge.

This is provided by counselling (both 1:1 and in groups; in person, by phone & online), and through our ‘Never Alone’ informal drop in initiative, where we facilitate support networks of people struggling with issues of loss and grief, and, of course, practical issues connected with a bereavement. We can also “signpost” to other charities that can help with more specialist forms of bereavement, such as loss by suicide or loss of a child.
