About this Death Cafe

We are part of a network in Medway that all want to break the taboo around grief, death and dying (we’ve cheekily called ourselves the ‘Brown Bread Collective‘ for anyone up to scratch on their Cockney rhyme). Also, both of us are dedicating our future careers to improving conversations around death. Running a Death Cafe is just the perfect place to start opening the door to those conversations. We are also both relatively young, being in our 30s, so we hope to bring a younger voice to the converstations that are so often aimed at older people (not that those are unimportant). We are very dedicated to this becoming a long term project, with the help of our local wholesome Brown Bread Team.
