GraveTalk is a café space to talk about death, dying and funerals. It is organised by the local church and can be held in a hall, a home or a real café. At each event a pack of GraveTalk questions are distributed – there are 52 specially written open questions which get people talking about death, dying, funerals and loss. There are no answers, just conversation. And it’s open to people of all faiths and doubts.’

Here for everyone, organising a funeral, going to a funeral, after a funeral, my funeral plans or anyone with questions about death, dying or funerals. Light refreshments will be served at this event.
