About Liz Paterson, Ruth Burgess,Dennis Gardenerand Rachel Wess
Ruth Burgess: I am interested in resourcing people with words, who are planning their funerals, cremations and burials. Also in exploring what practical resources are available locally e.g Hiring coffins, natural burial sites, funeral celebrants etc.
Liz Paterson: I lived and worked for many years in Uganda, where life is much more precarious and attitude to death very different from here. I am interested in how different life experiences shape our thinking.
Dennis Gardener: I deal with people planning for their final future, as an Estate Planner, and help the family to stop arguments and comply with the deceased’s wishes. I have come across most things and am a good listener, so I would like to help others in any and all aspects.
