ABOUT

Coffin Club UK is based on a model that has successfully run in New Zealand for a number of years. It is for anyone who wants to work out their funeral and create their own unique finale.

Why?

Coffin Club is a safe space to talk about death and plan your perfect send-off. It’s a place to come and learn about all the options available to you for your end-of-life celebration so that you are not simply channelled into having 20 minutes up the crem because you don’t know there are any other choices available to you. It is also somewhere to address funeral poverty but clearly examining the costs behind the funeral industry.

Who?

Coffin Club is open to everyone and anyone. Those who attend may include elderly people or those living with a terminal diagnosis, families or carers and others who simply don’t want to leave their last hurrah to chance.

Objective and Mission

Our objective is to empower people to take control of their final send off. To educate and inform everyone about all the options and choices that are available to them. By providing safe spaces for free discussion about something that can be a taboo subject we aim to demystify funerals and encourage healthy discussion and attitudes about end of life celebrations.

Structure

Each Coffin Club may be slightly different, reflecting the needs of the local community but Coffin Club Hastings runs as a six-week course, weekly for three hours. It consists of an hour of invited speakers and, if you want to, you can also decorate your own fabulous flat- packed coffin!
