Louise Winter is a writer, a funeral celebrant and the founder of Poetic Endings – a modern funeral service creating funerals of style and substance, relevance and meaning.
She’s also the editor of the Good Funeral Guide – the first ever independent guide to the funeral industry, a not-for-profit resource helping consumers to get the funeral they actually want.
Known as the ‘Mary Poppins of Death’, she hosts innovative events encouraging engagement with death, dying, life and living.
Louise’s epiphany to work in the death industry came after years of working in a very different field. “Death saved me from life, then life saved me from death,” she writes. “There are only so many times I could stare into my own grave before I had to embrace death and find a way to get on with living. Death has given me a life.”
Louise studied at London College of Fashion, before editing various fashion magazines and launching a publication for struggling twenty something girls, Dirty Laundry. In another life, she brought her unique creativity and storytelling to the world of brands, working with Jack Daniel’s, NASA, Bestival, ASOS and Time Out, amongst many others. She’s lived in London, Paris and New York.
She loves life, death and everything in between.
