Welcome to the Royal Navy, Royal Marines Widows' Association

We formed in 2008 when a small group of widows decided to set up an association to support other widows with the aim of bringing friendship, support, guidance and comfort to those who have experienced the trauma of bereavement.

Each one of the volunteers found that after a period of time we were searching for other Royal Navy and Royal Marines Widows' who we could relate to. We have members who range in age from their 20's through to their 80's, each with a different story to tell, but bound by a common bond of support and friendship.

Unfortunately there is no easy answer to the grief bereavement brings, there is no time scale, each of us will take a different path on the journey. However, we have all been helped along by friendships we have made in the association and we would like to offer our support to you too.

We have created this website, both as a place to bring together information which we hope you will find useful and to offer our services to you at this difficult time.

With our very best wishes.

What people say

"Life came crashing down on me when the news came that my husband had died in Iraq. But life does carry on, I will never be the same, but somehow I am learning to live with this new life.  Having met with other widows I feel less alone"
