Time-sensitive free resource: Your young person's guide to funeral terminology

13th September 2022| Blogs

A resource to guide your conversations this week

When a person dies, there are lots of different words that enter our vocabulary. Many of them may be new. Some are complex and difficult for any of us to wrap our heads around.

Taking a moment to help the children or young people in your care to hear and understand these unfamiliar terms in advance of Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral on Monday may alleviate a sense of confusion or a fear of the unknown on the day.

From Committal and Catafalque to the significance of the Vigil of the Princes and Lying in State, your resource highlights the meaning of 18 terms and is designed to support and guide your conversations in the classroom this week.
