Death Cafe Kingston

On Monday 13th May Death Café Kingston launched in the main Guildhall, Kingston Upon Thames.

It was an intimate and interesting afternoon attended by men and women from different backgrounds including palliative care, social work, marketing, mental health, funeral arrangers, Kingston University and Kingston Council.

Tea and cakes were enjoyed by all!

Discussions on a range of issues included death and serious illness, stages of dying, difficulties/ novel aspects of arranging and attending funerals, natural burial, death of a pet and the grieving process. Everyone made contributions that were listened to and valued by others and it was a privilege to participate to hear people’s thoughts and experiences.

Death Café Kingston will continue to meet on the following dates in 2019 at the same location;

4th July 5.30-7.30pm

26th September 5.30-7.30pm

11th November 1.00-3.00pm

All welcome to attend, the event is free but booking is essential. Open discussions may cover all aspects of death, dying and living, there is no specific theme or agenda.

Please note: the event is not a “drop in“session or suitable for those very recently bereaved.
