After Care

03Sometimes the loss of a loved one can be especially painful. We understand that the grieving process does not end with the funeral. We are here not only to help arrange the funeral, but to help families cope with the loss of their loved one. There are a wide variety of grief resources available and we will help to point you in the right direction and begin the healing process.

At Melville & Daughters our aim is to ensure that together we have created a memorable funeral service which helps to build the healing bridge to tomorrow.
