Wathall’s also has an extensive library of books about bereavement which you are very welcome to borrow. 

“Great books help you understand, and they help you feel understood.”

John Green

At Wathall’s, we are committed to helping people in our local community access the bereavement support they need in order to work through their loss.

The Dandelions Libraries, based at our Macklin Street, Alvaston and Borrowash offices, contain a range of bereavement related books, for various ages, to borrow free of charge.

Our collections include children’s books explaining grief and funerals, funeral poems, books on supporting bereaved people as well as books about grief.

You can browse the titles or contact us if there is a specific book you wish to borrow or if you would like a list of available books.

For more information, please contact Fay Bloor on 01332 345268.
