Bereavement Support

Dandelions Bereavement Support is a unique and award-winning service provided by Wathall’s which was first launched in 2014.

It was first instigated by our Managing Director Helen Wathall MBE in recognition that families needed the same high quality on-going support with their grief journey as they do when they come to us to arrange a funeral.

Since then, Dandelions has gone from strength to strength, expanding multiple times to help more local people who have lost a loved one.

We now offer four free meetings a month, six grief support programmes a year, one to one counselling sessions, training for businesses, bereavement activity books & journals and even a sympathy card range.

More information on all of our support services can be found on the list to the right, if you seek any further assistance you can contact our Bereavement Services Coordinator, Fay by emailing
