Coping with Grief

Grief is a natural, human response. Its effects should never be underestimated.

The loss of a loved one can be overwhelming, and it can cause a sense of grief that can often be incredibly hard to understand or cope with.

No one person suffers from grief in the same way. Its effects are often subtle and unavoidable, and it can cause any form of mental, physical, social, or emotional reaction. It is a process that requires substantial emotional and physical effort, and the grieving – and healing – process can take much time.

At Southern Cross Funerals, we appreciate how different cultures and religions may see death, loss and grief from different perspectives.

Our caring and experienced funeral directors fully understand the effects of grief on people, and they are dedicated in assisting you in your time of need.

In this section, we have provided a list of useful online resources to help you understand the true nature of grief, and to help you cope with it better.
