Having a funeral or memorial service for your loved one is an important step in the grieving process. The service gives family members and friends a chance to say their goodbyes, sharing remembrances and emotions while comforting one another.

In the days, weeks and months following the service, people continue to need others to lean on for understanding, encouragement and guidance. Fulham Funerals will help you reconnect with distanced family members and friends that can help in this process.

Support groups are also available to help you during this time of transition. These groups provide a comforting environment for expressing emotions through each phase of the grieving process. If you are interested, we can provide you with the contact information for some of these groups.
