A traumatic loss is one that is sudden and unexpected, and often results from horrific or frightening circumstances. Cruse provide information for those affected by natural disaster, terrorist attack, suicide and other traumatic losses.
When someone in your life dies, feelings of grief can be overwhelming. These feelings may be even more difficult to handle if the death is traumatic, sudden or violent. There are many types of traumatic death – it could be through an accident, illness, terrorism, murder, manslaughter or suicide.

(See below an excerpt from an active West Berkshire Widow who is locked down )
''In many ways the weather has been a godsend but sitting in the garden provides time to think, “What might we be doing now?” “Wouldn’t it be lovely to notice things growing together, or plant veg to eat and share?”
There must be so many people in this same situation and it is difficult to know what to do, other than sink further into an unhelpful mental state. I know there is a lot of support out there but what on earth could anyone do, it’s the situation that is so sad and quite un-repairable. ''
