Through Grief

Have you ever wondered why we have funerals?

Funeral ceremonies have been conducted since people began to form relationships. These relationships solidify the meaning of life and if not reflected at the time of death, individuals risk carrying unresolved grief with them, which can negatively affect how they move forward with future challenges and relationships.

For over 40 years, Newhaven Funerals has helped tens of thousands of people transition through the grief experience by providing support, expert advice, and professional service.

A Chance to Reflect

A funeral service is not for the person who has passed but more for those who remain. Those who remain should be given a chance to reflect on their own relationship with the person and have an opportunity in a safe place to deal with the emotional heartbreak they will be suffering ‘in their own way.’

Being part of a ceremony, no matter how big or small, will help acknowledge that the death has occurred; this is a primary step in our journey of grief and is why we have funerals.
