Talking
Death

We believe it’s time to start a more open conversation about death and what it means to us today. There’s so much room to explore what feels meaningful and what our choices really are. This blog is a place to share new ideas, practical advice, and stories from the frontlines of death and dying.

Ideas & Guidance

This is part a short series exploring how funerals can be more accessible for everyone. Here, Allen Richardson, who is visually impaired, explains how he planned and took part in his wife Margaret’s funeral.

Ideas & Guidance

At Poppy's, we work with dozens of different funeral celebrants as they craft and deliver meaningful funeral services for a diverse range of people. Find out how to choose the right celebrant for you — and how we can help.

Opinion

As part of our series on accessible funerals, Stephanie Owens unpacks the experiences of neurodivergent people and shares her thoughts on how funeral care could better meet their needs.

Ideas & Guidance

There are many reasons why you might want to plan your own funeral. We’re always ready to talk openly and listen carefully whenever people come to us to discuss their wishes. Here are some points to consider.

Opinion

One in five people in the UK describe themselves as disabled. That is over 14 million people who may face barriers in their day-to-day lives — barriers which often have nothing to do with their impairments, but because we don't pay enough attention in making services truly accessible to all.

In Conversation

At Poppy’s, nothing matters more than our people. Only by nurturing and developing our own excellent people can we continue to provide the best possible death care when our clients need us most. That’s why, when our People Manager Vicki goes on maternity leave this summer, we’re looking for a progressive people lead.
