End of Life Doula, Penny Merrett will be hosting our March Death Cafe, here at The Samuel Worth Chapel, Sheffield General Cemetery, 2pm – 3.30pm.

At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death. Our objective is ‘to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives’. A Death Cafe is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session.

Tickets are a suggested donation of £5.00. Proceeds go towards the charitable aims of Sheffield General Cemetery Trust.
