Adele Chaplin speaking at our conference on 'Healthy Longevity' taking place at Adastral Park on 15th and 16th October 2019.
Adele Chaplin is an accredited Humanist Funeral celebrant, conducting non-religious funeral services around East Anglia and the United Kingdom. Before working as a celebrant, Adele was a web site developer and content creator for companies such as the BBC, Aviva and The National Archives, but having taken 10 years out to raise her family, she decided to take the opportunity to re-train in a different field. Now Adele works full time as a celebrant, crafting unique memorable services, both for those who have experienced a bereavement, but also for those who want to plan their ceremony in advance – either due to a life limiting condition, or just because they are organised! She has also signed up to The Funeral Celebrant Accord, a newly developed set of criteria which defines what a good celebrant is. Adele also chairs the Ipswich and Felixstowe Death Café’s, hoping to bring a new level of death acceptance to Suffolk, and removing some of society’s taboos around death and dying. Adele firmly believes that the way to live a good life is to prepare for a good death and is happy to facilitate anyone who feels the same way. Outside of celebrancy, Adele volunteers at her son’s school as a librarian, is Welfare officer of Ipswich Judo Club, and currently helps with her local cub pack.
“Living your best life by preparing for a digital death”. Adele will be speaking about how we can best prepare for the management of our online presence after our death. From Facebook memorialisation to online banking passwords, digital books of remembrance to handling a deceased person’s email account, Adele will provide ideas, help and guidance, giving you much to think about for the management of your own digital estate. Adele will also talk about the rising demand for technology within the funeral industry, such as online streaming, music on demand and other digital services, and as part of this, she will give you the opportunity to think about, and record, what your wishes might be for your own funeral.
As a student, Adele used to live in a cupboard – this was before Harry Potter made it cool!
