PEOPLE have the chance to learn more about what to do when a loved one dies.

Tilly Bailey & Irvine Solicitors and Victoria House Funeral Service are coming together to give an afternoon of presentations and exhibitions to take the mystery out of funerals.

Carolyn Tilly, partner at Tilly Bailey & Irvine Solicitors and head of the firm’s wills and probate department, said: “Don’t worry that this might be dull or depressing. While the subject is sensitive, the afternoon will be light-hearted but informative, with breaks, a quiz and a prize draw, as well as an enjoyable afternoon tea.

“We’re planning this to help people understand what can happen when a loved one passes away. Hopefully that knowledge will take away some of the stress at an inevitably difficult time.”

The event takes place at The Grand Hotel in Hartlepool, from noon to 4pm on Thursday, October 2. Places are limited, to reserve a place to attend email cbuckell@tbilaw.co.uk or telephone Carmel Buckell on (01429) 405064.

Speakers at the event include Carolyn Tilly, Apolena Wilson from Victoria House Funeral Service, John Thompson from Blue House Woodland Burials and Linda Parker from Hartlepool Bereavement Service. Also Pastor Dave Russon will talk about understanding the spiritual side of end of life care.
