What to do after the funeral is over

At Dignity, we are here to support you at every step. After the funeral has taken place, there may still be a number of things you need to do.

If Dignity helped arrange your loved one’s funeral, one of our caring and experienced funeral arrangers will call you afterwards to ensure everything went smoothly and the service was exactly how you wanted it to be.

Even if we didn’t arrange the funeral, we are still able to offer you help and support during your time of need. You may wish to choose a memorial for your loved one, discuss the scattering of the ashes, or require help with any legal affairs. 

For many people it is only after the funeral that they feel the full extent of the loss of a loved one. We have a series of guides which will help you cope with grief and we can put you in touch with bereavement support groups, if you wish.

Memorials are a way to remember our loved ones and can range from headstones at a grave to a simple flower in a garden of remembrance.
