Who are we?

We’re Kate T and Kate D, the award-winning founders of Coffin Club UK and owners of our own successful celebrant business – Kate and Kate Celebrants. We are experts in all thing death-related and absolutely passionate about bringing choice to the forefront of funerals.

Our journey began as funeral celebrants who, very quickly felt frustrated by the lack of choices being offered to people around their end-of-life celebration. We knew there were so many different ways to celebrate the end of someone’s life but, somehow, these were being

completely overlooked in favour of channelling people towards the same old same old…

We realised that not many people were asking for anything different, as not many people knew that was even an option so, we decided to change all that and make people aware of all the choices available to them… and so, Coffin Club Hastings was born!

We’ve been on a roller coaster of a journey since then finding out what works and… what doesn’t! We’ve now run four-years worth of Coffin Clubs in our local community and have grown our family of affiliated clubs up and down the country.

Coffin Club is not about a ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ way to do things, it’s about explaining all the choices available and letting our clubbers find the send-off that is right for them. Since we’ve started working in a way that truly reflects our values we’ve gone from strength to strength and the impact it has on the families we support is all the proof we need that this way of working is where we should be.

Through this training we will show you how to bring this support to your community and empower people to have the funeral that is right for them.

FAQs

Why should I come on this course… can’t I just figure it out on my own?
Yes, you can try and work it out yourself, for free, just like we did. But trust us, it’s the long, hard way, and, while you’re figuring it out there are people missing out on the full breadth of support you could offer.

Not only that, through doing our training you become part of our community and the support offered as part of this package is priceless (well, actually, it’s £12 per month, but you know what we mean!).

Coffin Club is a Trademarked organisation so, while you are welcome to set up and kind of funeral information club you like, you are not able to use the Coffin Club brand or logo without our permission.

When does the class take place?
The class runs from 9am-5pm on Monday 27th September 2021, online via Zoom
What happens if I can’t make this class?
No problem! The class will run again.
I’ve only just started as a celebrant?
Perfect! You’re coming from the same place as your clubbers so you can learn alongside them. We may have been funeral celebrants, but there was still so much we didn’t know about the wider funeral industry. Learning as we’ve gone along has been half the challenge and half the fun!
