SPICE EXCLUSIVE: Funeral Myths - What's True and What's Not! : Manchester

Hosting By


This event is no longer available.

Why talk about funerals? Because at some point in our lives someone we love is going to die. A funeral is often our way of saying goodbye, and making it appropriate and right is one way to help our grief. So, join us for a fascinating talk about all those things you think you know about funerals – but maybe not… Do you get the right ashes back? Are coffins reused? Do you have to have a funeral service? Where can you have a funeral? This talk discusses all this and more, setting the record straight and revealing exactly what the legal requirements are around funerals – which you might find surprising.  

Our speaker Chelsea Duke is a professionally qualified and experienced Funeral Celebrant and Funeral Director, as well as long term Spicer. She also served five years as volunteer Chair of registered charity Winchester Bereavement Support. As well as busting a few myths and making you aware of how much choice you really have, there will be plenty of chance for questions – feel free to ask that one thing you’ve always wondered about.

2021 marks 40 years since Spice started right here in Manchester - the brain child of our founder Dave Smith; Spice began back in 1981 from Dave's home in Old Trafford, Manchester running 12 high adrenalin, often madcap events a year but nowadays is very much about socialising, making friends, sharing adventures and bucket list events all whilst having fun with like minded people.
Looking back, Spice Nationally has had well over 100,000 members through our doors who have taken part in the vast array of events on offer - though of course we are somewhat curtailed with our offerings at the moment.
We are celebrating our 40th Anniversary with a fabulous Ruby Ball at The Midland Hotel in Manchester in October 2021 and we are already at 60% capacity after just 10 days of tickets being on sale to our members.
For all our supporters who are no longer in membership for one reason or another, you can add yourself to a list to be notified at a later date if we do have capacity for non members by contacting your local office.
In the meantime we have a full program of online events during the lockdown with lots of fun on offer in the Zoom Room - not quite the same as face to face but still very enjoyable and we hope to be at the very least back out walking in December.
