Not just a funeral home

Celebrating memories, our family and yours
The Cardiff & Newport Bereavement Conference

On Friday the 13th of October 2017, White Rose hosted the biggest bereavement conference Cardiff has ever seen.

Founder of White Rose Funerals & Memorials Chaplain Ahmed Alsisi whom also happens to be the Director of Acceptance' said of the event "We take pride in our service and always strive to do better for the families that we serve. In recent years the number of bereaved families that have come to us and expressed the issues they have faced when dealing with Cardiff/Newport's bereavement system has grown immensely. So much so that we knew something drastic had to be done to help these families and put an end to these on-going problems. Thus came about the establishment of 'Acceptance'; we work closely with key figures in the bereavement industry to see how best we can avoid such issues and support those families who have been affected.

October 2017

The Cardiff & Newport Bereavement Conference was the product of such work, we were able to bring together all of these key figures and sit them down with the community with the aim of working hand in hand to help provide a better service for the bereaved in South Wales".

Guest of honour Chief Coroner of the UK Judge Mark Lucraft QC was among those in attendance and spoke about the coronary system in the UK and how it works; Senior coroners from Swansea & Newport also came down to give a talk about the possibilities of using alternative methods as opposed to an Invasive Post Post-mortems. The conference saw about 60 individuals from around South Wales turn up to be a part of the campaign to help improve the current bereavement system; among these were doctors, senior nurses, senior registrars, Councillors, local faith leaders , Martin Birch the operational manager from Cardiff's Bereavement Services and many more

As a result of this conference we are now able to provide our families with an alternative to an invasive

postmortem by providing an MRI/CTC
