Here it is – the longest Long List we’ve ever had!
We make no apologies for the following extraordinarily lengthy list of names – this year’s unprecedented flood of nominations and entries means that the unsung heroes who work so hard to help bereaved families are finally getting the recognition they deserve.
Well done to all those who have made it so far – you all deserve a very nice lunch! Hope you can make it to London for the awards ceremony.
