USEFUL INFO

Moving house and experiencing bereavement are known to be two of the most stressful times of our lives. Planning for death - even when leaving assets to people whose lives will improve as a result - can be emotionally challenging. Organising everything that happens after a death adds pressure to feelings of loss and sadness.

With a lot on your plate in a limited time, we thought it would be useful to give details of organisations providing background information, practical advice or which can take some of the stress out of your life. Click on the subject you are interested in or scroll down:
