‘Knock on the Door’

An Exploratory Study of the Experiences of Bereaved Military Families.

This report is about the experiences of bereaved military families in the UK and the impact of their loss and was carried out with funding from the Armed Forces Covenant Trust.

The aim of this study was to explore and understand the impact that death, whilst in military service, has on the surviving family. Specifically, it focused on how casualty notification was undertaken and the impact that the current process had on the long-term well-being of the family.

The findings illustrate how notification of the death of a spouse or loved one and subsequent emotional and practical support offered have long-term impacts on family members.
