Welcome to our manifesto – which we want to become your manifesto, too.

If you want a funeral in the UK today you can either recruit a funeral director or go it alone.

We believe that there needs to be another option — a funeral service that is developed and supported from within a community.

Our vision is for a community funeral co-operative – what we call a Community Funeral Society, a CFS.

This is a new idea in the UK. It needs trialling and development.

We would very much like you to contribute to this and help make it happen. You can do that in three ways:

1.       Subscribe to the cause by adding your name to the list of supporters – go to Support Us

2.       Contribute your ideas by writing them in a comments box – there’s one at the foot of every page.

3.       Offer your expertise to the project – go to Support Us

Over time the text on this website will alter as ideas are adopted. We shall chart progress in our blog.

First, though, is this a project you think you’d like to get behind? Find out by going to We Believe.
