Online Death Cafe Cymru

This was our sixth Online Death Café Cymru and we were pleased to welcome both new and returning guests.

Both the role of the unpaid carer and grieving under the pandemic featured heavily in the conversation this time.

Among other things, we touched on: Covid lockdown and its impact on funerals, isolation, delayed grief and the role of community in mourning; grief as a manifestation of love; childhood, children, death and funerals; the comfort of ritual and recognising the circle of life; assisted dying; the need for death education; hope for change in our attitudes towards dying and death in the UK through the recent Lancet report The Value of Death; the need for open conversations about death; cultural difference with regard to death, for example in Mexico and Japan; caring for loved ones with dementia; services linked to death (florists, graveyard maintenance).
