In the end : A practical guide to dying by Jackey Coyle

In the End: a practical guide to dying is a book for everyone.


It is not just for people with a life-limiting illness; it is for families, carers, friends, health professionals, counsellors and those who just want to be well prepared.


In the End looks at death and the dying process as a natural part of living.

Not confronting or challenging, it will provide practical information to help you:

  • plan the legacy you would like to leave behind
  • think about what you would like to happen with your possessions
  • consider any advance care plans you would like to make
  • let your loved ones know what you would like your funeral to be like
  • and much more.

In the End offers the knowledge and tools we need to open up a conversation about dying and death, and to regain a sense of control at a time when we may feel that is lacking.


The practical sections of the book can be used as a planning resource by someone who is going through the end-of-life experience themselves, or supporting someone who is.


All proceeds from the sale of In the End will go towards helping Fernlea continue our important work supporting people with life-limiting illness.
