Bereavement can be a particularly difficult time for most people. You may be unexpectedly faced with the death of a family member or friend and don't know who to turn to for help and advice. The council's Bereavement Services are responsible for managing the cemeteries and crematorium in Leicester, and arranging burials and cremations. Please see our information pages for how to get in touch should you require advice or need to arrange a burial or cremation.
There are many local and national organisations that can help support and offer advice when you are faced with a bereavement. Please see our pages on bereavement counselling for a list and contact details for a few of these organisations that may be of help to you.
