The Light Beyond - you are not alone in your grief Bereavement ForumStoreMovieBlogSympathy Ecards
Helping you through bereavement, one step at a time...


Will you let us look after you for a while?

Someone you love has died. And, like countless others who have walked the path of grief before you, you are discovering that a death can rob you of so much more than a person you love. It robs you of your energy, your hope, and sometimes just of the simple will to get up in the morning. We are here to help during this difficult time.

If There's Anything I Can Do: our guide for the friends and families of the bereaved shows you how to help without getting in the way

Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep: soothe your soul with over 250 of the world's best funeral poems, quotations and readings

How can you cope?

The simple answer is that you can't do it alone. Now is the time to ask for help and recruit a community of friends and family to help ease the burden of the bereavement process. And we hope that you feel able to count on us, too. Let us console, inform, comfort and inspire you; let us listen to you and walk along the path of grief with you.

May that thought be of some small comfort to you at this time.

"The Light Beyond has the most beautiful short movie I've come across. The thoughtful words and outstanding images offer those of us who have lost a loved one a sense not just that someone understands but also of hope and optimism for the future." M.R.

"Bereavement For Beginners is a really valuable resource for music, readings and giving a eulogy as well as dealing with the legal process. Importantly, it also encourages you to think about your own feelings." J.W.
