Royal London presents Lost for Words
Royal London believes everyone deserves to be informed, prepared and financially able to die well. To help people and their loved ones prepare for death, we need to get comfortable discussing mortality and grief.
That’s why we’ve launched Lost for Words, a digital exhibition in collaboration with acclaimed portrait and fashion photographer, Rankin. Lost for Words features Gloria Hunniford, Ashley Walters, Konnie Huq, Malin Andersson, Divina De Campo, John Stapleton, Jeff Brazier, Stuart and Doreen Lawrence and others, who have joined the campaign to remind us that everyone, no matter who you are, will benefit from talking about death.
The exhibition features Rankin’s conversations with a number of people about their experiences, some who’ve faced bereavement very recently during the Covid-19 pandemic. They reflect on their feelings around loss, what they’ve learnt from the process and how to deal with the practical and financial side of death.
Support and information
In addition to the exhibition, we have lots of resources, guidance and information to help you and your loved ones prepare for death and deal with loss – emotionally, practically and financially.
The rising cost of funerals is leaving many people struggling to cope with the financial burden of paying for their loved one's send off. At Royal London, we lead and influence the Government and industry, and provide practical support, to help people have an affordable and dignified funeral.
