What happens if you die without family or money? The little-known world of council funerals
Evie King is the author of Ashes to Admin: Tales from the Caseload of a Council Funeral Officer, a memoir about her job arranging funerals for those without family or funds, a little-known role that she wanted to make the world more aware of. Her book aims to tell the otherwise lost stories of those who have ended up in her care, smash that 3am anxiety about who will be there when we die and how many people will attend our funeral, encourage advanced planning, and invite us to rethink our ideas around life, death, and legacy.
Date: Saturday 3rd February
Venue: Wolverhampton Art Gallery
