Christmas help and support

With restrictions and social distancing remaining a part of our lives for the time being, our Christmas Service of Remembrance and other resources we usually provide at this time of year are going to be slightly different.

If you need further help or support, please don’t hesitate to use Grief Chat which is a free to use support line. For more information please click here.

Our annual Service of Remembrance is now available to view here online. Ministers, Civil Celebrants and members of the Rosedale team across Norfolk and Suffolk have worked together to ensure we can continue to deliver this despite the restrictions.

You can download and print the order of service here.  Alternatively you can have it posted to you by ringing any of our branches.

You can also watch the service and follow it with the order of service on the same page here.

If you would like, you can leave a message and a photo of your loved one on our Christmas Memorial Page.

Please note that messages will not appear immediately as before they are uploaded they are checked to prevent unwanted comments.

Christmas Book of Remembrance
Lonely this Christmas cover

We have created a booklet entitled ‘Lonely this Christmas?’ It is specially designed to help bereaved family and friends at this time of year.

It includes useful hints for the Christmas period, advice for bereaved children and other helpful information.

If you would like a printed copy of this, please phone any of our branches and we will be happy to post it out to you.  Alternatively you can download a copy below.

Lonely this Christmas?

From the 1st December candles and tags are going to be available outside all of our branches. As they are outside, there is no need to make an appointment to pick one up.

Once you have filled in a tag you may want to hang it on your own tree, or you can post it through our letterbox and we will place it on ours.

There is going to be an opportunity in our Service of Remembrance to light a candle for a period of reflection, or you may wish to light it at 11am on Christmas Day in unity with others who are remembering their loved ones.
