About Our Site

FacingBereavement was formed to offer a unique reference point on facing and dealing with bereavement.

Dealing with the death of a loved one is never easy, but it can be even harder when it feels impossible to talk about the emotional or practical issues that accompany such a loss. Working through grief, arranging final affairs and honouring the memories of loved ones are all easier when when the bereaved feels informed and supported.

Though there are many professionals dedicated to helping the bereaved, many times those who have suffered, or know that they will suffer, a loss prefer to gather basic information on their own.

From emotional topics such as coping with a loved one's terminal illness to practical matters such as organising a burial at sea, from legal affairs related to a death to special circumstances surrounding the loss of a loved one, FacingBereavement provides comprehensive information and advice about working through bereavement and the challenge of moving past a loss - even when it feels unimaginable.

Our writers have experience or a particular interest in helping others as they navigate through the many issues accompanying the loss of a loved one. While we do update FacingBereavement regularly with new articles on important topics, readers should also feel free to write to us with suggestions or questions. Our writers work hard to provide useful information to readers and they are always happy to hear more about what others want or need to know.

Our concern was that there was no single UK resource for interesting features and practical advice on this subject.

Our features and articles are written by experts - who have experience, or a particular interest in this area.

Our Background

John, through PtS, is involved in a number of ventures including software and property companies. A percentage of revenue from these activities goes towards funding FacingBereavement and a number of similar sites.

Our focus is simply on having experts create the highest quality information possible that is widely read.
