How we can help

The Royal Navy Royal Marines Widows’ Association supports those who have lost a recognised partner who is serving or has served in the Royal Navy or Royal Marines. All who are widowed are eligible, regardless of the circumstances surrounding the death.

We offer three kinds of membership, applicable to both commissioned or non-commissioned former service personnel, categorised only to allow for evaluation of the support we provide:

Full membership:

For you, if your deceased spouse or recognised partner was a serving member of the Royal Navy or Royal Marines at the time of their death.

Associate membership:

For you, if your deceased spouse or recognised partner had served in the Royal Navy or Royal Marines and their death occurred since leaving the service.

Honorary membership:

For you, if the Committee agrees that you have contributed to the work of the Association or if indeed the Committee feels your interest and skills would benefit the association.
