Grief and bereavement support from A Hazel & Sons

At A Hazel & Sons Funeral Directors we understand how difficult it can be to lose a loved one, to get back to the daily routine of life without those that we shared it with. We are here to help you through this difficult time, not only by helping you arrange a funeral service that honours their memory, but also when everything gets quiet and you need someone to talk you.

Grieving is a process that is unique to every person, there is no normal or 'right' way to grieve. Depending on your relation to the loved one, how they passed away, age, personality, culture and experience; this can take any shape or form.

We are always here for our Erdington community, no matter how long ago the loss was. We also work closely with other organisations and communities that provide bereavement counselling and support.
