About this Death Cafe

Death Cafe operates a free affiliate scheme

London's first Death Cafe was help in 2011, by Jon Underwood, a UK web develloper and he was inspired by Crettaz's work. (A Swiss sociologist). 

Death Cafe have helped to relax the taboo of speaking about death, particularly with strangers and its an open-end discussion to provide an avenue to express thoughts about one's own life stirred up by the death or dying of close friends or family members.

Principles of death cafe...

  • No intention of leading participants to any conclusions, product or course of action.
  • Its an open, confidential and respectful space where people can express their views safely.
  • Its not a bereavement support or grief couselling setting.
  • We create a time to discuss death without expectations.
  • There is no hierarchy, we meet simply to talk,agenda free. 
  • The objective of Death Cafe is to increase awareness of death and dying with a view to helping people make the most of their 'finite' lives. 

They are held all over the world for anyone wanting a safe space to discuss death and dying.

About Mel V

I recently lost my dad and this is a first death so close to me and I find it very difficult to grieve and to express my feelings. I took part in a Death Cafe recently and I found it very helpful and I would like to share and spread this experience. 

To be able to better manage this Cafe, we will invite 8-10 people, so that everyone is able to participate.
