Pop-up Grief Café

The first Saturday of each month 2.00pm – 4.00pm

Mortlake Crematorium in partnership with the Good Grief Trust hold a pop up Café the first Saturday of each month at Mortlake Crematorium between 2.00pm & 4.00pm in the waiting room or outside if the weather is warm enough.

Pop Up Cafés were launched in 2019 to offer a friendly place out in the community to pop along and find others who may have been through a similar bereavement.

The purpose of the Good Grief Pop Up Café is to offer an umbrella of support in local communities and raise awareness of the Good Grief Trust online database which unite bereavement services across the country.

You are welcome to walk around our beautiful grounds, have a soft drink and cake and chat to our volunteers and others.

It is hoped that it is a way to connect grieving people with their local communities.  By sharing stories and meeting and talking to others, we can hopefully help each other find a way forward.

Volunteers kindly make cakes and if there any are left over we will be taking them to vulnerable people in the community.

If you have a food allergy please let us know so we can have drinks and snacks available which are suitable.
