About this Death Cafe

Poppy and Tonie are glad to welcome you to Tooting Library for this Death Cafe. This will be an inclusive, informal and friendly opportunity to gather together to eat cake, drink tea and talk about death.

It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session. This opportunity is for adults and not children.

You don't have to book, you can just show up, but if you'd like to register your interest in advance, please do sign up here.


We'll see you there!

Tooting library is a short walk from Tooting Broadway underground station (Northern line) and close to bus stops for the 270, 333, 57, 77 and 44 bus routes.

The library has a lift, accessible toilet and wheelchair ramp. The library will be open to the public while the death cafe is going on.

About Poppy Mardall & Tonie Greig

Poppy founded funeral directors Poppy's in London in 2012 to bring a fresh approach. Her mission is to raise expectations of the care people receive when someone dies, and to educate people about their options at the end of their lives so they fully understand their rights and choices at this critical time. In addition to her work at Poppy's, Poppy has been a spokesperson on death, dying and funerals in the national media, a trustee for Cruse bereavement care, a hospice volunteer and a Samaritan.


Tonie had a career in teaching at secondary level, secondary teacher training and coaching. Upon retirement Tonie retrained as an end of life doula with Living Well Dying Well. She became a bereavement counsellor with St Christopher’s Hospice and now facilitates group bereavement courses.
