Dying Matters Resources
Talking about death and dying can be tough. Our resources will help you, your family and friends to start the conversation.
PDFs and print-ready leaflets
Our six leaflets help you deal with different aspects of death, dying and bereavement. They are available in easy read, web ready and print at home formats.
There are versions of our leaflets suitable for supplying to a professional printer.
Note for your printers
The leaflets are designed to be printed as A5 roll fold, and the recommended paper weight is 150gsm silk or similar.
If you're printing on a home or office printer, you can print as ordinary sheets and staple in the corner or long edge. If you need a large print version you can print them at A4.
Dr Kathryn Mannix has written a suggested reading list for books to help us think about death, dying and grief.
