A unique event to discuss what happens after we die will be taking place in Aylsham.
Aylsham Parish Church are hosting the day to allow people to discuss funerals, death and grief, and to explore the questions some may find hard to ask.
Working with local funeral directors, Ivan Fisher Funerals, the group hopes to encourage people to talk about what can often be a taboo subject.
Revd Canon Andrew Beane, team rector, said: 'If we truly want to celebrate someone's life we need to encourage people to talk to their closest relatives or friends about their wishes. If they can't talk then perhaps write down the type of music, hymns and readings that they think would help those grieving.'
The event runs today (Friday, May 19) at 10am to 3pm at the church on Market Place.
