Banburyshire Info mascots at Puritans Radio for the Banburyshire Show

The magazine style talk show, with a little music.

“In this world, nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes” ~ Benjamin Franklin

Guest presenting the show this week is local celebrant Judy Mansfield, who estimates that in over 3 years of officiating funeral ceremonies, she has helped over 200 families (some more than once) say goodbye to a loved one.

Guests include Chris Humphris of the Funeral Directors Humphris Funerals. Established in 1880, they are Banbury’s longest serving funeral directors. They will be talking about changes in the funeral industry, and about Funeral Plans.

We will also be talking to Aaron Taylor from Edd Frost and Daughters, and finding out why he decided to make the funeral industry his career, and what he likes best – and least – about making a living with the dying.

If you would like to know about Wills or Power of Attorney, you won’t want to miss the interview with Jennifer Koch from Spratt Endicott

Death is the final taboo – or is it?

How many of us are comfortable, talking about death and dying? Does the internet make it easier to discuss death and dying? The recent spate of celebrity deaths: David Bowie, Victoria Wood, Prince and others were widely discussed (and still are) in the media, but how many of us have planned for our own death?

And if not, why not?

We plan for births and marriages… so why not our death too? David Bowie planned his death – could we do the same, or have you already done it?

This week marks “Dying Matters Awareness Week, and local celebrant Judy Mansfield will be guest presenting this Thursday’s Banburyshire Show along the themes of #TheBigConversation.

Don’t worry, it isn’t all gloom! There will be interviews with local funeral directors, as well as a legal firm with advice making your will and what should be in it, and we will be exploring what happens to our social media accounts when we die.

We will also discuss

  • Bucket Lists,
  • Death Cafés,
  • Funeral Music Top Ten,
  • Five Things to Do Before You Die!
