Bereavement support

We understand that losing a loved one is difficult so we are here to help if you need practical or emotional support.

This could be referring family members for bereavement counselling or talking through emotional issues. Losing a loved one can also involve financial pressures and we would be happy to talk you through your options. Contact your EB Community Support Manager for one-to-one help and advice.

Some people find writing a eulogy or poem is helpful during the healing process so we have created remembrance areas offering families who have lost a loved one to EB the chance to celebrate their loved ones life. We have added two remembrance pages for you - one is for children and young people up to 16 years and the second one is for adults. 

Create a remembrance page

Take your time and think about what you want to say about your loved one, you may want to write the piece in Word first.

Once you are ready to submit your eulogy (this can be a memory, a short message or simply something that made your loved one special to you) or poem click on the link below and begin.

You won’t be able to view your eulogy straight away, it will be on the website within five working days. If you'd like to add a photograph to your eulogy simply email the photo to us with the subject line 'In Memory' and we will add it. 

Add your eulogy or poem

If you require any help with loading your eulogy then please contact us on 01344 771961 or email us and we will be happy to help. 

You can view the remembrance pages at any time:
