The Poetic Endings Team
We don't look like traditional funeral professionals, because we're not. We're an eclectic and multi-talented team from a variety of backgrounds. We're united in our commitment to provide an exceptionally good funeral service to bereaved people.
Louise Winter - Funeral Director & Founder
Louise is a progressive funeral director and the founder of Poetic Endings. Before training as a funeral director by working with a traditional funeral service in West London, Louise was the editor of the Good Funeral Guide and an experienced funeral celebrant. She's also the director of Life. Death. Whatever. - an award festival and community that exists to change the dialogue around death and dying. In 2017, Louise won a Death Oscar at the Good Funeral Awards. She loves food, fashion, poetry and just about everything else.
Tilly Munro - Funeral Director
Tilly arranges beautiful and sensitive funerals around London as well as curating the Poetic Endings' library. She was born in Paris but grew up in London and Oxfordshire and now lives in Tower Hamlets, east London.

She is married to Iain and has two children, Penny and Joseph.
Anna Lyons - End-of-Life Support
Anna is an end of life doula, helping those who are living with dying. Her experiences have shown her that people want and need to talk about dying, but they just don't know how. She's also a teacher and fine arts lecturer.

Pushkin is our friendly and supportive British Shorthair cat. She passionately believes that people should be supported in their grief with meows and cuddles. She enjoys sitting in front of the fire and eating Dreamies.
