About Bereavement Care

We are a not-for-profit website designed to provide people who have recently lost a loved one with information and support on grief and their legal duties following a death.

When someone close to you dies, the grief you feel can be overwhelming; however, there are a number of legal obligations which need to be fulfilled within a certain amount of time. Issues can also arise over the payment of life insurance and the granting of probate.

Being fully informed as to what happens when a death occurs can help people feel in control at a time when circumstances can make one feel deeply uncertain about both the present and the future.
