Beginning the Funeral Arrangements

If you have any worries at all about the cost of the funeral, please ask for advice before making arrangements. The Bereavement Services Department at the hospital, the hospital Social Worker, the Funeral Directors or your own Benefit Office will be able to advise you.


If you are unsure about anything, or need someone to talk to, please do not hesitate to ring the UHCW Bereavement Services Team on 02476 965835, 02476965838, or 02476965834. You may also call the main hospital switchboard and request to speak to ward staff – 02476 964000, or a Hospital Chaplain on 02476 967515.
