Emotional Support


When a loved one dies, it is often a confusing and traumatic time. Knowing what to do and how to do it is not always easy.
That's why our family is here to support yours.

The preparation of a funeral takes time, care and experience. At TJ Scott & Son we make many of the arrangements behind the scenes to make this time easier for you.

While you do need to make important decisions, having a professional TJ Scott & Son Funeral Consultant available to guide you through the options and decisions, will provide you with further peace of mind.

Our connection and continuity means you receive quality care and responsive support. 


At TJ Scott & Son we understand grief and the significance of the bereavement process. Our personalised funerals and fitting farewells support people to reflect on and celebrate life, allowing time and opportunity to share your thoughts and feelings – an important part of the grieving process.

Grief is the range of normal and natural responses we feel when we experience loss - any type of loss, not just when someone we love has died.

We grieve when we lose something or someone significant to us. Grief is a universal experience and it’s an important part of our life cycle as human beings. It is unique to each person and no two people grieve in the same way, even when you are grieving the loss of the same person.

Four generations of experience have shown us that there’s no right or wrong way to grieve. Nor is there any timetable or measured stages you ‘pass through’.

It is a process that involves a range of emotions, thoughts, feelings and reactions such as sadness, anger, disbelief, guilt, shame, bitterness, relief and gratitude. It can also include physical reactions that may interrupt normal sleeping or eating patterns, or heightened reactions such as frustration or teariness, listlessness or apathy.    

Saying goodbye to someone you love is difficult – it can seem like you will never get through these seemingly endless waves of emotions and feelings. Just when you feel like you can start to paddle, another wave can come crashing down over the top of you.

It’s different for everyone but remember that support is available and you are not alone.
