I have an MA in Death, religion and Culture from the University of Winchester (2020) and am a Director of CEDAR Education, a death education CIC. I work part-time for Caring for God's Acre, a charity that supports and promotes the environmental and cultural heritage within burial grounds across England and Wales.


An exploration of the Death Positive Movement, exploring what it means to be death positive and whether this sets up an unrealistic expectation of controlling death and whether it can be seen as a new religious movement.
