A blog about funeral planning, cemeteries, graves and their forgotten stories.

As much as we wish it wasn’t, death is part of life. By learning more about it, our mortality and ways to say goodbye, the inevitable becomes less confronting. This blog aims to reveal interesting, informative and sometimes quirky and fascinating facts and thoughts about end of life planning. It’s written by journalist Lisa Herbert, author of The Bottom Drawer Book: An After Death Action Plan.

You’ll find Lisa’s most recent blogs listed on this page.

So put on your hat and some comfy shoes as we explore cemeteries, the world of funerals, death and dying, interesting graves and stories that need to be told.
