AMBIGUOUS LOSS AWARENESS DAY
The first Ambiguous Loss Awareness Day was launched on 19th July 2022. It was founded by Chloe Swinton of Ambiguous Loss UK as an annual date to raise awareness of ambiguous loss and to remember all those who may be missing in mind or body.
We offer resources for support and continue our mission to build a world more compassionate and understanding of those who are experiencing ambiguous loss.
The Ambiguous Loss UK website was registered and established on 19th July 2015, which is why we chose this date. It also happens to coincide with one of the many monumental ambiguous losses in history – the sinking of the Mary Rose on 19th July 1545. On this day, of the approximate 500 men who were lost at sea, only 35 survived.
