‘Sit Down & Shut Up. The Man In The Coffin Has Something To Say’

True Crime Conversations
True Crime Conversations

Bill Edgar is the world's only Coffin Confessor.

He attends people’s funerals, sits quietly amongst the mourners, and then at a time pre-determined by the deceased, he stands up and confesses.

Sometimes, it’s a shocking secret. Sometimes, it's their last wish.

What started as a favour for a friend, has turned into Bill's life calling. And as he’ll tell you, it’s not an easy job, but it’s worth it.
