Bereavement services

We offer impartial help, support and guidance on all aspects of bereavement including memorialisation. Bereavement Services are full members of The Charter for the Bereaved (Word). 

Unfortunately Bereavement Counselling is no longer available at Norse Road Cemetery but details  of a Bereavement Group at St Mark's Church Bedford can be found here.

To make an appointment with us please call 01234 718150. Appointments are available between 10am to midday or 2pm to 4pm Monday to Friday.

Help and advice

Funeral costs and financial assistance

If you’re on a low income and need help to pay for a funeral you’re arranging, you could get a funeral payment. How much depends on your circumstances and if you qualify.

 Any money you get is usually paid back from the deceased person’s estate (if they have one). Visit GOV.UK for further information.  

For anyone who has served in the armed forces, it may be possible to obtain assistance with funeral arrangements. You can find further information at Veterans UK, The Royal British Legion, or The Royal Navy Benevolent Trust
