The Coffin Club

Don’t leave it till you’re dead – plan ahead!

Empower yourself and make a plan for the time when you’re gone

Each Coffin Club around the country is where people can come together to plan their final farewell. Empower yourself to sort out the end of your life so you can get on with living!

The Coffin Club Aberdeenshire is a not for profit social franchise, an educational platform, a training organisation and an online resource.

Death is the only guarantee we have in life. But that doesn’t mean it’s easy to talk about.

The problem with silence is that those left behind must make painful decisions about your funeral, without knowing if they reflect what you would have wanted.

To make life easier, control is often handed over to a Funeral Director. This is fine – if it is an informed choice.

But did you know you don’t need to have a funeral director if you don’t want one? Your service doesn’t have to include music and poems? And you don’t even need to have a coffin?

 “Everyone who is going to die should attend Coffin Club”

Miriam Margoyles, Coffin Club UK Patron

The greatest gift you can leave your loved ones with is an end-of-life plan. I know from personal experience how difficult it is to plan family funerals when wishes were never openly discussed.

At a time when you should be grieving, you are bombarded with a myriad of decisions to make, from the venue to the funeral tea, followed by constantly worrying if you made the right decisions.

At the Coffin Club Aberdeenshire West, we provide a safe space for these conversations to take place. Carefully chosen expert speakers will provide you with the knowledge you need to make informed decisions about what happens after you take your last breath.

I founded the first Coffin Club in Aberdeenshire to help anyone who has ever asked themselves these questions:

  • How do I plan a funeral?
  • Do I have to have a funeral?
  • Do I have to use a funeral director?
  • Can I plan a funeral myself?

So come along to get the information you need to plan your funeral and become more accepting of death at the same time.  Then you can get on with living!

This way you can reduce the pressure on your loved ones after you’re gone – and have the ending you want.

Coffin Club Aberdeenshire West is a registered charity number SC051522.
