Arka is one on Britain's most distinctive, forward looking and intelligent funeral directors, an influential agent of change. Cara and her team are dedicated in supporting you to create a send-off that is rich and right and real and transformative of grief. They focus from the very outset on the ceremony you want to create.
At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death. Their 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. When searching for a café near you, remember to put “uk” after the town in the search box as it is an international site.
Holly will work with you to create a beautiful ceremony and support you through the process to achieve the funeral you wish. Holly gently cares for people who have died in as natural and holistic way as possible using essential oils to care for and support the body.

The Dying Matters Coalition
Set up in 2009 by the National Council for Palliative Care (NCPC) to promote public awareness of dying, death and bereavement. Its mission is “to support changing knowledge, attitudes and behaviours towards death, dying and bereavement, and through this to make ‘living and dying well’ the norm”.
What Matters Now
Provides free personal websites for people whose lives have been affected by serious illness or injury. They provide this service to support you and your family and friends as you face life-changing illness together.
Their intention is to help people to be surrounded by the love and support and have the space for reflection when facing a life changing situation. Your personal website can be used to share updates, guide meaningful conversations, receive messages of love and encouragement, and let people know how they can help.
