Local Support and Recommended Resources
in the Airedale, Keighley and Bradford Area...
Many of the parents who contact us ask for help with choosing services such a funeral directors, florists, counsellors.. This section of our website provides a list of personal recommendations from other bereaved families, along with quotes they have provided us with about the services.
One of our aims is to provide families with a trusted list of resources, and to recognise the expertise and skills of local businesses that go above and beyond when working with families who have lost a child. We hope that by doing this, families may feel less overwhelmed by choice and feel reassured by choosing services that other families have had positive experiences with. The resources listed below are within the local area of Airedale Hospital, or are able to provide services to that area. If you would like to recommend a resource to us, you can do so further down the page.

Local Recommended Florists

- Evergreen Floral Art
"Jennifer at Evergreen Floral Art did our wedding flowers years ago, so as sad as it was, I wanted it to be her that did my baby's funeral flowers. I didn't know what flowers you're supposed to have or what I wanted, so she helped me choose flowers with special meanings. They were so beautiful."
