Each May in the UK Dying Matters Awareness Week seeks to encourage healthy conversation about death and dying, removing the stigma and fear about the end of life.

In September’s Funeral Director Monthly we look at the Church of England’s new ‘Gravetalk’ project and also Australia’s version of Dying Matters Awareness Week ‘Dying to Know Day’ to see how the debate continues to shift and change as people become more comfortable with discussing death and funerals.
