When someone dies – where to start?

When a loved one passes, it can feel like you’re totally alone. Everything seems difficult and you may not know what to do with yourself. Taking those first steps can be the most difficult part.

Here at Love’s, we want your experience with us to be all about you and the person you’re saying goodbye to.

We’ve put together a few links below to help you in those early hours, days and weeks:

Bereavement Advice Centre supports and advises people on what they need to do after a death, giving practical information, advice and signposting on the many issues and procedures that face us after the death of someone close.


A step by step guide from GOV.UK including how to register a death, who you need to tell and dealing with an estate.  


Taking care of your loved ones

When choosing who should take care of your loved one, it can be useful to read reviews and consider the recommendations of friends and family. Making a connection with the Funeral Director will generally give you a feeling of whether you would feel comfortable and at ease in their presence.

Here at Love’s, we encourage you to come in and meet us. This could be before you need our services or when you are planning for your loved one.

The team here at Love’s are at the end of the phone 24hours a day, ready to help, support and guide you at your time of need.

We use our professional experience and empathetic, heartful approach to offer the families in our care, an exceptional quality funeral service.
