Funeral Guide is an online resource that helps the bereaved by providing independent and verified funeral director reviews and practical help and advice - from organising a funeral to coping with bereavement.
Across all cultures, one of the most difficult moments in life is when a close family member dies.
Nothing can prepare you for the death of a spouse, sibling, parent or child.
The emotional pain of a loved one dying is so great that it can score 100 out of 100 on the Holmes and Rahe Stress Scale.
The problem is that we as a society don’t know how to deal with death, and sometimes that means the bereaved don’t get the help they need.
Our mission is to help the bereaved.
In the immediate aftermath of a loved one’s death, the bereaved are lost in a sea of emotions.
However, practical things need to be done and one of the most pressing is arranging the funeral.
Most people have never arranged a funeral before, so it is a bewildering and daunting task.
Funeral Guide was created to help the bereaved by providing a central resource where you can find all the information you need around the time of a funeral.
Working with funeral directors, Funeral Guide also provides a range of free services to help the bereaved.
If you work for a funeral director, please click here.
If you work for an organisation that comes into regular contact with the bereaved (e.g. a hospital or hospice), please get in touch.
With over 5,200 funeral homes listed across the UK and thousands of independent reviews, you can use our funeral comparison service to compare funeral directors quickly and easily to find the right service for you and your loved one.
Simply enter your town or postcode to find local funeral homes near you. You can filter results by nearest, most reviewed and best rated to see how different funeral directors and undertakers compare in your local area.
Our funeral director reviews are independent and genuine. Only people who have used a funeral director for their loved one’s funeral can leave a review, so you can compare funeral directors easily and with confidence, to find the ideal service for your loved one.
