While attending Death Salon UK, I met Harry and Dominic who were live-blogging the event on behalf of Prepared London, a website they had put together as part of their MA in journalism at City University.
The site is aiming to provide ‘the knowledge on the capital’s funeral industry’, which is a big goal but they seem to be doing a very enthusiastic job so far.
Harry got in touch afterwards and asked if I’d expand a little on some of the points we’d chatted about so I wrote a short article for them which you can read on their site.
It’s a very brief look at the responsibility placed upon those of us at the cross-section of the technology and the funeral/death-care industries. This is something I’ve been considering a lot recently, and I’ve discussed a few ideas with Sam for some practical steps that we can take to help those who are new to either side.
As soon as we confirm how we think we can best help, I’ll post up some information here.
In the meantime, I’d like to thank Harry and the team at Prepared London for taking the time to get in touch and for letting me take up some space on their website. I wish them all the best for the rest of their course.
