The Queen’s Funeral Monday 19 September

Dear all

As the nation prepares for Her Majesty The Queen’s funeral, we want you to know we’re here for you if you’re finding things difficult.

We understand that the public outpouring of grief can be triggering and upsetting if you have experienced the death of someone close to you, but we’ve got advice to help you approach the day in a way that feels right for you.

Bianca Neumann, Head of Bereavement, Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice, Cheltenham, shares her advice about how to approach the day when you are already grieving for someone close to you.


You are not alone. Continue to reach out. We are here for you.

Take care.



I lost my Mum 2 weeks ago so the TV will be switched off that day, don’t need any more reminders of death/funerals etc


Agree this will affect all of us especially this this blanket covering on most TV channels. Literally I’ve been watching so much rubbish just to avoid the same old stories hashed and rehashed.

My sympathy goes out to anyone who has lost a family member but we have to think about ourselves and our own well being. So if it makes sense to you to avoid watching then do so - I’m sure it’s not treasonable (If there is such a word) :wink:

Much love to all
