Funeral firm opens to the public.

This website has always tried to open up the conversation about death and I believe that it is a first that John Fraser and Son, funeral directors in Inverness, Scotland, have joined in Open Doors Day in Inverness.

Open Doors Day allows visitors to see behind the scenes of places usually closed to the public.

There will be the opportunity to see the mortuary and embalming suite and staff to answer questions. "... to furnish people with as much information as they want, to help put their minds at rest."

Open Day is January 20th but by arrangement John Fraser and Son would be happy for anyone to see their facilities at any time.

After Loss sincerely hopes that other funeral directors will take the opportunity to do the same.

It is my wish that everyone should be prepared for this period of grieving, know something about what will happen to you, how you will a...

About Me

Like many many others I have experienced the loss of a loved one, (see "My Story). I believe that those who will lose a loved one in the future could be helped in their grieving if they knew a little of what to expect. Whilst there will be grieving, some of the effects will be "normal" although alien to the bereaved at the time. To know in advance that many of the ways that you feel and the things that you do are the same as many others may be a great help. Please do not hesitate to contact me via the email link on this page.
