I am organizing my first Death Cafe, I have learned others have attempted and failed. I don't want to fail. So I am reaching out to a seasoned Death Cafe planner to assist and/or provide a composite to edit and send to local newspapers, etc.

I thank you in advance.

Phd Death Café Research - seeking participants (London)

Phd Death Café Research - seeking participants (London)

To all London Café attendees...


I am a Counselling Psychology doctoral student at the University of Roehampton and I am looking for up to 8 volunteers to take part in my research.

This project will be exploring the experience of attending a Death Café (DC) as a bereaved person, focussing more specifically on how the DC may (if at all) be significant for meaning-making in the wake of loss.

As a participant in this study, you would be asked to attend a one-to-one interview with me. Your participation is entirely voluntary and would take up approximately 45minutes ...

Bereavement Services, NHS, Nottingham

Hi there,

I am a Bereavement Officer at the Queen's Medical Centre Hospital. My team are currently on a fundraising endeavour to raise money for a new department and, in the new year, we are embarking on a series of fundraising events. We would love it if one of those events could come in the form of a Death Cafe for people to gather, drink tea, eat cake and of course, talk about death! However, I was wondering if we are allowed to have donation buckets for the bereavement department at the event or whether this is something that you discourage. 

Thank you in advance for your advice and guidance,

New to Death Cafe

Posted by khudghton on Oct. 4, 2019, 9:14 a.m. 1 comment

Hi all

I have just discovered Death Cafe and am very keen to hold my own in Manchester, UK. I work in the events industry so have a good support network to make this happen.

I am just wondering how we market this in terms of what we name it - is it a 'charity'? Are we 'volunteers'? I know it is not for profit but I am struggling with the phrasing.

Do we also need to have any sort of official approval or are we pretty much just left to our own devices? Any help apart from the guide on here would be v useful.

Thank you

Feedback from attendees

Posted by Brigid on Sept. 23, 2019, 7:48 a.m. 2 comments

I have run a few Death Cafes now and almost every time I have had feedback from some people saying they'd find it helpful to have some prompts or questions. I have never done this, as I'm aware of the guidelines, but I can see how it might be helpful for some people who want to talk about death but don't know what they want to talk about specifically.

Has anyone had similar feedback? How have you dealt with it? Have you renamed your Death Cafe to something other than Death Cafe and had things like questions/prompts?

Hi there,

I would like to host a death cafe in Munich, Germany in order to raise awareness. I have a practice for psychotherapy and would like to host the meeting in one of my practice rooms as it is free of cost and large enough. However, I read your policy and was wondering if holding the meeting at my practice would create any conflict of interest (according to your rules). I would not promote myself obviously, but the room is in my practice location. Thanks.

Press enquiry

Posted by Deathpositive on Aug. 26, 2019, 6:54 a.m. 1 comment

hi there 

I wonder if anyone can help? Im hosting a death cafe at a venue that has its own magazine - and they have asked me to be interviewed for it. There are questions about death cafe so I can answer them and give all the info on the guidelines/ history/ how to start one etc but there are also some personal questions on my opinions about death etc. The magazine is for the venue only  and will not be available at the death cafe for the participants. Is this ok? and does anyone have any advice re guidelines and press? 

many thanks

Death Cafe State College PA

Posted by F. Glenn Fleming on July 9, 2019, 11:14 a.m.

Hi I wanted to ask you about promoting a Death Cafe.  Our main purpose is to educate the community on death and a place for individuals to talk about this subject.  We are a funeral home and we sponsor the event at our local coffee house.  We do use our advertisment avenues to promote the events in our local magazines and newspapers.  We are not using this to promote our business and we park our identities at the door, this is another avenue of community programs we support and sponsor in our area.  By using our logo in our ads, does this violate your guidelines?

College Death Cafe

College Death Cafe

We are hosting a Death Cafe at the local college soon.  We thought that we would take a bit of a different approach to getting interest by posting a "Coming Soon" poster first and then follow up in one week with a date/time/location poster.  We are part of a local non-profit that hopes to start "the conversation" among groups in our city.

Wondering about how to hold a death cafe?

Wondering about how to hold a death cafe?

Over the years I have often been asked for advice on this.

I like to encourage people and am happy to depart with my bit of wisdom for what it is worth. Writing about it is quite time consuming every time, so when I was asked about this again the other day I decided to post it here in case it is useful to others:

Read all the information on the death cafe website on 'How To Hold a Death Cafe'.
Read 'What a Death Cafe is'.
Read how other people advertise their death cafes and what they say about ...

My name is Alexandra, I’m a paliative care psychologist and I’m starting a work with veterinarians. 


I’d really like to know if it’s possible to organize and host a death cafe to discuss pet’s death issue and I’d also be very ppelased to know your opinion on this matter/idea.


best regards,
