About this Death Cafe

Christmas and New Year are times of happiness, gratitude and hope. And also times for thoughtful reflection, reminding one of the absence of loved ones and the fragility of human life. Talking about death won't harm us - rather it can enhance and deepen our experience of life in the coming year and beyond. 

Our warm and friendly Death Cafe is held in a full access community resource centre. It has no agenda other than to converse and share ideas and feelings about death, while eating cakes and sipping tea together. It is NOT a therapy or bereavement group. Our objective is shared by all Death Cafes: "to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives." 

PLACES ARE LIMITED. If you would like to join us please contact the host/facilitator through the website, requesting a place. Thank you.

About Derek Grant

I am a retired university lecturer, psychotherapist and counsellor (NHS and private practice). I am an enthusiastic volunteer at the Forty Hall Community Vineyard. I'm also a street photographer (people and places), love music and other forms of expression, am interested in oral history and personal narrative. In 2017 I discovered the life-enhancing Death Cafe movement and attended 6 before hosting Death Cafe North Enfield. I'm an energetic septuagenarian who relishes and embraces life whilst accepting the reality of death.
