Talks about death, dying and funerals

Talking about death, dying and funerals

We would be very pleased to talk to you and your group on any aspect of death, dying and funerals.

As well as organising funerals, we aim to be part of a wider movement that encourages thinking and talking about death as a natural part of life. In coping with death, we believe that talking about death reduces our fear of it, and allows us to both live – and to die – better.

We are available to give talks to community organisations, Women’s Institute, U3A, Rotary and Probus groups, and professional organisations, as well as doctors, nurses, care workers, schools and other groups.

The talks are interactive and informative, yet tread lightly around areas of death and dying that the participants might find difficult. Each is tailored to the needs and nature of the particular group, and from our experience groups have always found the occasion to be stimulating and enjoyable.

Topics include:

  • Funerals… Celebrations of Life? The Changing Face of ‘The Dismal Trade’. An informative, and entertaining look at how funerals have changed, what influenced these developments and a chance to share and ask questions about death, dying, bereavement and funerals.
  • Creating a personal funeral service and ceremony.
  • Go as You Please – choices in funeral planning.

 

Workshops:

We help run a workshop called The D Word ……… Talking about Death and Dying.

The ‘D’ Word is an essential workshop for carers of the Dying, and is done in conjunction with Sue Brayne – ex-nurse, academic, and author. Her website can be found at www.braynework.com.

For assistance with any of the above please call us on 01453 767769, or you can email us by clicking this link
