Stories

 

We are really excited to announce that as well as using this website as a platform for all the stories we have received during the tour of my show there is also going to be a book featuring many of these stories and others that we invite at this time. The book will be published by PCCS and be available from next autumn and launched at the 2020 Kicking the Bucket festival in autumn. Alongside the stories it will contain expert commentary and advice on the themes arising by a wide range of experts from doctors and nurses to grief counsellors, funeral directors and death dualas, child bereavement charities, home funeral advisors, suicide support and a pet bereavement line. It will also provide a wide range of further resources and advice points in different fields. We shall continue to collect stories from the readers and share them here under the title of the book. If you are interested in contributing a story please click here. Meanwhile see below for the growing resource of stories from our audience.
