Lodge Brothers funeral directors New Malden have first-hand experience when dealing with the painful consequences of 2020 and the Corona 19 Pandemic which affected, afflicted and shut down the UK, leaving families reeling as they faced the loss of freedom of choice, freedom of movement, loss of jobs, loss of finances and most difficult of all, loss of life. Funerals are highly emotionally occasions but even more when a person loses their life to a global pandemic, which appeared unexpectedly a year ago and proceed to upset our normality and shake us to the core. The passing of someone who has succumbed to Covid-19 is even more raw and emotional when that life becomes part of the painful statistics, which the country faces on a daily basis.
