About this Death Cafe

Join us in a relaxed setting to drink tea /coffee & to eat cake whilst discussing anything you want to in relation to death and dying, life and living.

Our Library Death Cafe is a safe, confidential and supportive space to talk or just listen -Friendly, informative and intimate. Please note that this is not a grief support or counselling session so is not suitable for anyone sufffering bereavment or who maybe feeling vulnerable about the subject of death.

The session will be facilitated by Hasina Zaman from Compassionate Funerals.

This session is part of The Redbridge Final Party Project - A project aimed at sparking conversations and discussion about death, dying, life and living through a series of events and workshops which help us celebrate life whilst removing fear and barriers around the subject of death.

The project is funded through the Engaging Libraries programme administered by Welcome Trust & Carnegie Trust.

About Hasina Zaman

Hasina Zaman, CEO Compassionate Funerals

Working in partnership with Redbridge Libraries to host Death Cafes. 

In May 2015, my eldest brother died, I led his funeral and in his memory hosted a Death Café. The theme that evolved was the journey of the soul.

Hosting Death Cafes allowed has me to experience and embrace difficult conversations on death & dying. Death Cafe attracts people from all walks of life who share their experience of personal bereavement, planning our departure, feelings about their own death and different types of death, i.e. suicide, accidental, baby/child to sudden deaths. Death Café is an open and safe space that allows people to explore deep unresolved experiences and can be a hugely healing. Each Death Cafe usually has a natural occurring theme.
