A practical resource for people who have been bereaved
January 11 2021
A document has been published to help people who have been bereaved deal with notifying relevant organisations and people about the death.
Dr. Sharon McDonnell, Managing Director of Suicide Bereavement UK, and her colleagues created the document. It aims to help bereaved families because it is the family of the deceased that is legally required to notify specific government agencies of the death. There are also many other organisations that families may need or want to inform.
Sharon said in her blog where she shared the downloadable form:
“This is an extremely difficult, emotionally charged, and labour intensive task for the bereaved.”
The form is designed to be used by anyone who is bereaved, regardless of the cause of death.
We have added a link to this form on our Support for people bereaved by suicide page, alongside other publications and organisations that offer practical support during this difficult time.
